Become a Friend of St. Herman’s!

Friends of St. Herman’s are donors who give $2,500 a year or more to St. Herman House.  

The support of our Friends is vital to our ability to carry out our daily programs.  Through their combined giving, Friends of St. Herman’s contributed nearly one-third of our annual operating budget in 2021!

Here’s what one family had to say about why they give: “We love helping the community of St. Herman’s. We always want to provide, and they are always gracious to receive any donation (monetary, food, items, help). It is the most humbling act to help the community. We are honored to be part of their ministry.”

If you are able, please consider becoming a Friend of St. Herman’s in 2022! Donations can be made in one lump sum, or in smaller amounts throughout the year.

We provide meals to the community 7 days a week, 365 days a year. We provide tens of thousands of meals a year on a food budget of less than $2,500 a year!  We are able to do this because of the amazing generosity of the community around us.  We accept donations of canned items, fresh fruits and vegetables, frozen foods, and prepared foods. If you have a question about a specific donation you would like to make, call our main number at 216-961-3806.
