FOREST AVENUE FAMILY SHELTER
URGENT NEEDS
IT IS THAT TIME OF YEAR AGAIN - SUMMER. THINGS ARE HEATING UP. WE DESPERATELY NEED BOX FANS.  HEAVY DUTY ONES, PLEASE.  THE CHEAP ONES JUST DO NOT HOLD UP.


Forest Avenue Family Shelter is going through urgent financial need at this time.

Support has dropped off this year. Unfortunately the bills have not.
As you may or may not know, because of finances, our staff are all volunteer. They receive only a very small monthly stipend ($150) for their hard work. Without staff support, our bills are about $4,000 per month.

We appreciate our faithful donors that have continued to support us each month and those of you that give quarterly gifts. Thank you for your continued help.

Perhaps your small group, church, organization or even individuals would consider making a regular or even one-time gift to Forest Avenue Family Shelter.

Forest Avenue Family Shelter is 1 of only 2 true emergency shelters in Kansas City.  Besides City Union Mission, every other shelter has moved to transitional living and has a screening process in order for people to be admitted.  At Forest Avenue Family Shelter, we take people off the streets, meaning that a person can call us and, if we have an open bed, they can get in that night or, in some cases, the next day. The only thing we need to know is whether or not they are homeless.  This is a true Emergency Shelter.

Thank you for your support!
