Every dollar makes a difference

As a local organization, Day By Day Shelter raises 95% of its annual operating budget right here in Winnebago County. We count on the generosity of local businesses, foundations, faith communities and individuals to help ensure safe shelter for anyone who needs it. Your support provides a warm bed, nutritious food and supportive services to help local homeless on the path to self-sufficiency. Here’s a small sampling of what your gift can do…

  • $50 provides safe shelter for one guest for one night

  • $125 covers the cost of supplies needed to operate the shelter for one week 

  • $1000 covers shelter utilities (water, gas, electric) for one month during the season
