Make a Donation Today
We’ve been able to do our incredibly important work through private donations, our own fundraising and the fees paid by our residents. As a non-profit, we’re able to keep our costs low and focus all our resources on the one thing that matters most: Getting vulnerable, addicted men off the streets and into society.
But we can’t do it without your help. And we currently have two important initiatives that need a little financial boost. Both of these programs will allow us to do more for the people of Palm Beach County and the indigent, desperate men who need our help the most. You can make a difference in their lives and the lives of our city by donating to one of these great causes.
Indigent Care Fund
Meet Alex; we met him in 2013 at one of his lowest points in life, today he owns a successful restaurant here in our community. Help us open our doors to those unable to open them for themselves. Our Indigent Care Fund has allowed us to open the doors to over a thousand men like Alex that otherwise might not have been able to find help. Your #GivingTuesday contribution to Fern House will help ensure we can continue our mission to restore dignity and hope to those suffering from addiction. donation of $210.00 will allow us to take a homeless person off the streets and give them a starting point to rebuild a life of purpose.

FOUNDATIONS FOR THE FUTURE:
2020 marks the third year of the “Foundations for the Future” Campaign; our five-year effort to raise $1,500,000 for construction of a new health-conscious cooking facility and dining hall of increased capacity to serve the entire Fern House West Palm Beach and Lake Worth/Harry Hamilton Campus residency. The new building’s blueprint includes a recreation room to promote residents’ wellbeing, study and relaxation; as well as smartly configured office space that will pave the way to success in our future expansion efforts.
For the last thirty-seven years, Fern House has held a one primary goal in mind, help men get off drugs, successfully navigate through early recovery and rebuild their lives.
For years Fern House has successfully accomplished its mission without the need to fund raise to support program operations. We are fortunate in that our program is self-sufficient in that no fundraising is necessary to keep the doors open. 100% of our fundraising efforts are for capital improvements to our facilities and expansions of services allowing us to serve more clients.
With those thoughts in mind, Fern House is today embarking on its largest ever capital campaign. The Foundations for the Future Campaign will allow us to remove a building from our Church Street property that is over sixty years old and in need of serious and immediate repair, replace that building with a state of the art kitchen and dining facility with improved capacities in the areas of seating as well as nutrition. We will also be adding a recreation room and additional office space that will put us on a path to succeed in future expansion efforts.
Fern House will be raising $1,500,000 over the next five years to develop and construct a state of the art kitchen facility along with a new dining facility large enough to accommodate our entire client base. To achieve success, we need the support and generosity of the local businesses, charitable organizations, and individual community members.
We invite you to help us lay the “Foundation to the Future” by purchasing a brick on our redesigned entrance at the base of our new clock tower. With your support, Fern House’s Foundation will be forever rock solid.
