Pillars Adult & Family Shelter
Representative: Shelley Nulton
In late 2018 the Fox Valley Warming Shelter, Homeless Connections and the Housing Partnership of the Fox Cities merged into a new organization that will be known as Pillars. Pillars Adult & Family Shelter provides a safe temporary shelter and guidance for adults and families in the Fox Valley. Approximately 75 people are sheltered each day. In addition to financial support, First Congregational has stayed actively involved in Pillars, with members of the congregation volunteering in the yearly “point of time” count, serving meals, working the front desk and performing various other miscellaneous services. The largest activity has been participation in the E2F (Empty to Full) Pans program. Since is its founding in 2011, First Congregational has provided approximately 1260 pans of food.
