Foundation provides
support and assistance
to families in need from
our five-county area
"I just listen. And care.
And if I can share anything
I have, I say, "You got it.'"
We provide food,
clothing, financial aid,
and household goods
free of charge to those in need
In 2013, there were
15,000 visits
to our food pantry
Our volunteers
are the backbone
of The Foundation

Giving hope. For 25 years.

Since 1989, The Father Fred Foundation has been providing food, clothing, household goods, and financial assistance to those with less within our five-county community. In the words of Father Fred himself, we are here to listen, care, share, and above all, provide hope for those who find themselves in difficult times. Our goal is to ensure that no one in our community falls through the cracks - and we do all this without accepting any state or federal aid.
