Learn More About Fellowship Missions: Frequently Asked Questions


We love being able to answer your questions and share more about how our ministry works here at Fellowship Missions. If you missed our first FAQ blog post, you can check it out here.

Is there a time of year when the shelter is more full?

It’s easy to assume that our emergency shelter is more in demand, but the truth is that we operate at capacity year round. There are always people who need help and a safe place to stay.

Our goal is to not only provide food and shelter to those who need it, but to also help our emergency shelter residents become self-sustaining members of our Kosciusko County community.

If someone needs shelter and we don’t have room here at Fellowship Missions, we work with our local community partners to help find them a safe place to stay.

Do you or a loved one need help finding shelter immediately? Call now: 574-268-9555

How can I help?

We get this question regularly and we love that our community is so invested in helping us and one another. Since we’re still operating under restrictions due to the COVID-19 pandemic, it can be frustrating having to turn volunteers away.

Right now we can’t have volunteers in the building, but it won’t always be this way! If you want to volunteer with us, get a head start on the process by filling out an application. That way once our doors are open to volunteers again, you’ll be ready to get started!

Remember, we always appreciate your prayers, especially during this challenging time when we can’t have volunteers in the building with us.

If volunteering isn’t the right fit for you, we are always accepting monetary donations and physical donations. You can view our Needs List online or call us to find out the best way to donate items our residents and staff need. 

Do you have any beds available?

This is one of our most commonly asked questions, especially through our Facebook and Instagram messaging platforms. The best way to get this information is to call us. Since our capacity can change quickly, calling us ensures you get the most up to date information available.

We also have new intake protocols we need to follow due to COVID-19. By calling us to check if we have beds available, we can ensure you understand the new intake process and that helps us make sure we keep everyone safe and healthy.

What good is it, my brothers, if a man claims to have faith but has no deeds? Can such faith save him? Suppose a brother or sister is without clothes and daily food. If one of you says to him, “Go, I wish you well; keep warm and well fed,” but does nothing about his physical needs, what good is it? In the same way, faith by itself, if it is not accompanied by action, is dead.
