Donate Your Time

It takes donations of money to provide much of the help that the homeless require making their way to self-supporting status. But, there are also many ways in which individuals and churches can donate their time and God-given talents and be a vital part of changing the lives of the homeless. Here are just some of many possibilities:

  • Phone interview prospective clients to screen for eligibility; complete question form
  • Complete intake form with approved clients, and assess needs, request and record background check
  • Counseling, as your practical life experience would allow; spiritual, life skills, budgeting, job skills
  • Provide rides to clients as needed
  • Help provide meals to clients at partner motel locations
  • Help find permanent housing for homeless; work with subsidized housing agencies, negotiate with landlords, etc.
  • Adopt a homeless individual or family
  • Fund raising for FSBH; creative individual programs, or through church organizations, events
  • Provide free legal services (divorce, child support, fines, etc.)
  • Provide free doctor, dental, psychologist services
  • Follow-up calls/casework to ensure client’s well-being; track fulfillment of goals to self-sufficiency, permanent housing, etc.
