Fellowship Place needs your support during The Great Give® 2023!

Our agency is seeking support for the Fellowship Inn Daytime Drop-in Center for the homeless.

Your donation will help us provide breakfast and lunch 7 days a week, and laundry supplies for homeless adults who come to the Inn for daytime support services. Funding of this program is a priority, especially as the agency struggles with rising costs due to inflation and supply chain issues, and a 30% increase in demand for services. Fellowship Place serves more than 200 homeless adults annually, many of whom struggle with a mental illness or a mental illness and co-occurring substance use disorder.

Donate anytime from May 3rd at 8:00 am through May 4th at 8:00 pm by visiting:


  • A $25.00 donation provides nutritious meals for over five homeless individuals in the Inn
  • A $50.00 donation buys laundry pods for the homeless to do 220 loads of laundry in the Inn
  • A $100.00 donation buys nutritious meals for over 20 homeless individuals in the Inn
  • A $250.00 donation buys 40 nutritious meals and 220 laundry pods for the homeless in the Inn
