The Ozanam Family Shelter, like most non-profit organizations, struggles to survive and thrive. We receive funding in the form of grants from three government agencies:
The Department of Metropolitan Development (DMD)
The Indiana Housing and Community Development Authority (IHCDA)
and The Indiana Department of Education (IDOE)
These three organizations offset a portion of our financial responsibilities, but the significant percentage of our operating revenue comes from our many donors. Donors like you.
The shelter depends on the help of our generous benefactors. We would like to take this opportunity to extend a huge "Thank You" to everyone who contributes to our mission of serving families and single women experiencing homelessness within our local community.
We would like to share with you an example of a typical monthly expense report for Our Shelter:
Sample Monthly Expense Report
PAYROLL (Salaries & Taxes)
UTILITIES (Vectren, Water, Phone)
SUPPLIES (Office, Shelter, & Groceries)
INSURANCE (Property & Liability)
PROFESSIONAL SERVICES (Annual Audit & Tax Preparation)
REPAIR & MAINTENANCE (Pest Control, Security, & Sprinklers)
FUND RAISING (Mailings)
A significant percentage of our operational budget comes from individual donations. We rely on the support of our local community to fulfill our mission and continue to serve the homeless families and individuals within our local community. Please help us to continue our community service by donating today!
We accept monetary donations, food, the donation of your time as well as a variety of specific items which depend upon the time of year and demand. The specific items list is constantly changing, so please check the list found under our "Donate" tab.
Monetary donations may be made by clicking the "DONATE NOW" button below.
We would like to take this opportunity to again thank our many, many donors. Without your continuous support we could not survive and thrive. Thank you for the Financial Support, the Food, the Clothing, the Supplies, the Christmas Gifts, the Food Drives and the Time that you all have given to Our Shelter. Please accept our heartfelt THANK YOU.
