St. Francis Home Committee Support Heller Houses

The Mission Integration Committee at St. Francis Home recently presented a donation to Melvin Heller, former Fond du Lac Police Chief and Fond du Lac County Board Member who worked closely with the Robert E. Berry House Inc. Board of Directors to open the Heller Houses. Heller (center, seated) accepted the donation, to support two Fond du Lac homes known as Heller Houses that help people living with mental illness gain independence. Heller has been a longtime local mental health advocate. The transitional homes, located next to each other, have the capacity to house eight people. The St. Francis Home committee routinely hosts bake sales with proceeds benefitting local charities.
