The Jeremiah Community Fund

This fund supports the vision for The Jeremiah Community, a supportive neighborhood built to care for the unique needs of those overcoming chronic homelessness. The project will include at least 50 small homes (450 square feet), a community center, a garden, an art workshop, and a variety of on-site supportive services.  

This project seeks to combine all that the downtown churches have learned in caring for unhoused neighbors these last 18 years. It is named for both the prophet Jeremiah—whose story holds a message of hope for an exiled people in Israel—and Fredericksburg’s own Jeremiah—a man who spent 27 years living on the streets of Fredericksburg before moving back indoors. The effort it took to help our local Jeremiah off the street and continue to be part of his life after housing is a testament to the relationship many chronically unhoused neighbors need to be successful.
