The Father Fred Foundation helps local families and individuals with immediate essential needs. Ensuring families have nourishing food on the table. Keeping families in their homes and often the heat and lights on. Providing much needed shoes and clothing, or a couch or bed when such comforts of home seem unaffordable. Our vision is to provide a place where no one falls through the cracks, and where all who come to us are treated with dignity and respect.

In the spirit of Father Fred, what we have is given free of charge and we accept no state or federal funding. Please consider a donation to The Father Fred Foundation, and help us impact lives in the five-county Grand Traverse community (in NW Lower Michigan).
