Grow Change, Hope & Compassion With Us!

Are you committed to creating relevant programs/ services that deliver second chances with respect & realistic expectations? Join our planning team!

Our ability to adapt and keep current depends on community visionaries, passionate about shaping our programs and services to benefit Fond du Lac County.  We’ve collected input from clients and community in a 2018 needs assessment, a 2019 community conversation & multiple client/volunteer surveys and now we’re building our next 130 years of service from ideas and information gathered.

We invite community members to seek membership on a committee and help us meet Fond du Lac County's changing need, head on.

Take a brief look into our History

The way we help has changed over the course of our 130 years. We’ve adjusted our focus many times to respond to community need, for as long as needed, most notably:

  • Opening and operating Kindercare in 1973-2008 to offer quality, affordable childcare;
  • Beginning FDL Operation Back to School in 1989 to offer free school supplies (now Back to School FDL)
  • Creating the Brown Bag Lunch program in 1993 to offer free lunches in summer (the program distributed over 13,000 lunches in 2019)
  • Partnering with St. Agnes Hospital to begin free healthcare through The Samaritan Free Health Clinic in 1993
  • Opening The Salvation Army Warming Shelter in 2015 to offer free winter shelter for homeless adults
