Our Impact

We know it's hard to feel like you are making a difference in the fight against homelessness for local families. The problem feels unsolvable and sometimes, our individual contributions feel small in comparison.

Over the past 35 years, FESCO has built a community of organizations and people, just like you, that pool our resources to give these families a fighting chance though:


An Emergency Shelter

A Transitional Living Home

Supportive Coaching and Access to Resources Like Job Training
