Some residents of the homes are unable to pay the fees required to live there. In response, FBC has established an endowment fund, the proceeds of which are used to scholarship these individuals so that they may continue to live there. The fund is named the Herbie Embrey Endowment Fund to honor the memory of a former resident of the Cates Home who had endeared himself not just to FBC, but the entire community. While administered by FBC and supported primarily by its members, the Herbie Embrey Group Home Endowment Fund accepts contributions from any individual, agency, or institution that wishes to be supportive of this cause. All contributions to the fund are fully tax deductible.
