People Helping People
Part of the character of a community is defined by how it helps its most vulnerable citizens. LEAVEN started as an idea of Father Robert Udulutsch, a local priest who saw a need for a network providing emergency assistance to the needy of the Fox Valley area.
Since 1987, LEAVEN (Limited Emergency Assistance Valley Ecumenical Network) has been the bridge between hardship and hope for residents of Calumet, Northeastern Winnebago, and Outagamie Counties.
Supported by local individuals, churches, businesses and foundations, LEAVEN provided emergency
financial assistance for housing, utilities, transportation and other basic human needs for over 7,180 households in 2012.
Help strengthen the character of our community by supporting LEAVEN, as a donor and volunteer.
