Cheshire Homes greatly depends on donations from the public to run the organization to provide food, health care and development skills to ensure those in their care have the best quality of life. Although the organisation receives a percentage from government as a social grant and residence do pay towards their care, it is not enough to cover costs incurred by the organisation.
