The Hospitality Fund is designed to extend physical assistance to persons and/or families traveling through Fort Scott that have no other resources and need help to reach their destination. The fund also meets physical needs of the residents of Bourbon County.
The alliance coordinates area nursing home services, Thanksgiving and Easter Services, Fort Scott High School Baccalaureate Service, and “See You At The Pole” Services.
How many people are served?
We usually assist an average of 45 persons/families a year.
The Hospitality Fund is distributed by the Fort Scott Police Dept. under the guidelines of the Ministerial Alliance. Therefore, help is available 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. Also, a board member can be contacted any time by the police dept. or a local church not a part of the Alliance for assistance.
What percentage of your budget is the United Way Grant?
The Hospitality Fund is funded 100% by The United Way. Our other services are funded through annual membership dues and private donations.
