How Can You Help?

Advent House is an outreach ministry of the Perinton Ecumenical Ministries, Inc. We are supported by the people of the churches and community at large, grants, United Way Donor Option, special events, memorials and donations.

You can provide financial support by making a pledge to enable the services of Advent House to continue. This gift can be made by a check made out to Advent House and sent to Advent House, 1010 Moseley Road, Fairport, NY  14450.  We are unable to accept online donations at this time.  Donations can also be made via automatic transfer direct from your bank.  Contact Jeanne Kremers, Advent House Business Manager, at 223-6112, to set up an automatic bank transfer.  All donations are tax deductible.

If you feel that you can share time or money to help those we care for at Advent House, or you would like more information, please call (585) 223-6112.

This Holiday season (and all year-around!) when you are making your on-line purchases from Amazon.com, please consider donating to the Advent House through their AmazonSmile Foundation program.   At the end of your purchase, Amazon.com customers may select a charitable organization (Perinton Ecumenical Ministries dba Advent House) and then the AmazonSmile Foundation donates to the Advent House (the foundation covers the administrative expenses). 

Thanks for considering Advent House for this corporate giving program!

“Although it was a hard journey for both Dad and our family, the environment of caring, calm acceptance and quiet of competence you created at Advent House eased our transition and gave us comfort and courage.” Resident’s Family

Individual volunteers can help to solicit, organize and transport items for the Advent House Dinner Dance & Auction fundraiser as well as the Golf Tournament.  Volunteers are also needed to sort and price donated items for our annual garage sale each summer as well as help transport items once a week in June and July.
