80% of the Center's budget is funded by private donations. Each year, it costs $3.1 million to support the Center's initiative to break the cycle of homeless. This breaks down to about $43 per guest, per day. Your financial gift allows the Center to provide life changing services today and into the future for those experiencing homelessness in Michiana.
You can make a financial contribution to impact Center guests for years to come.
Naming the Center for the Homeless in your will or living trust ensures we will be able to break the cycle of homelessness for years to come. There are many types of bequests:

Please consult your attorney to see which designation is best for your current financial needs.
