Where & What We Accept

Here at Jeremiah’s Inn we house two programs under one roof.

It takes a lot of community support to provide the best service that we can to our guests and patients. Your tax-deductable donation will help us fulfill our mission to help people better their lives. Your contribution will certainly be the difference between someone surving – and someone thriving.

To make a donation by check, please make payable to Jeremiah’s Inn and mail to:  P.O. Box 30035, Worcester, MA 01603
