Founders Fund
The Founders Fund recognizes individuals who make donations at the $25,000 level. These gifts are payable over a period of one to three years. A gift of this level provides resources to operate the entire house for a month. It helps ensure that no one will be turned away. The Founders Fund is named for the early organizers who helped make the vision of Omega House a reality.

Veterans Fund
Since opening our doors, U.S. military veterans have made up to approximately 30% of all residents. We are honored to serve these residents. You can recognize a veteran, a branch of service or a veterans group with your gift.

Naming Opportunities
Omega House has naming opportunities available for donations small and large. This is a unique way to forever honor or remember a loved one. For gifts of $1000 an etched glass panel commemorative wall has been created that greets visitors as they enter the house.
