The clinic receives monetary and in-kind donations, along with time volunteered by the staff. However, medicines and other items needed by the clinic do come at a cost, with Noble adding that donated time and money is always needed. The clinic has 125 active volunteers, and it takes about $8,000 per month to run the clinic and pay for all of the supplies.
