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.
FOUNDATIONS FOR THE FUTURE:
What started two years ago was a mission to honor the memory of a dear friend and founder Jim Robinson who spent thirty years building and guiding the direction of Fern House helping us to created a program available to the indigent in Palm Beach County. Our vision has expanded to create the FOUNDATIONS FOR THE FUTURE of Fern House.
This vision will replace our dining room facilities with a new and upgraded dining space able to accommodate more men as we expand our services as well as a modern kitchen space to nourish these men back to health. This project will also create an expanded administrative space and recreation area for the men. The project builds the “Foundations for the Future” preparing for the ever expanding needs of Fern House as we fight to combat the opioid crisis, the worst thing to his this community in more than a generation.
As addiction tears through our community and families feel powerless to help their loved ones, we ask that you consider joining us and help Fern House prepare to fight this problem head on for decades to come.
Indigent Care Fund
This fund allows us to waive the entrance fee and first week’s rent for indigent men who want to enter Fern House. With your help, we can get a man with no resources into our program for one week and turn that week into a lifetime change. A simple, one-time donation of $253 provides a new resident with a safe place to live, three meals each day and treatment for his substance abuse. If you would like to donate to either fund, please call us at 561-471-0430 to get started. You can also use the form below to make your donation online. Thank you for helping us continue to help men get off the streets and into sobriety.
