It’s our firm belief that one of the best ways to pay tribute to someone special is to pay it forward. The tribute program is an impactful way for friends, family and colleagues to honor someone while making a difference in the work we do every day.

In 2021, FBMS’ tribute program was renamed the Anne Deschenes Memorial Fund to honor the life of Anne Deschenes, FBMS’ longest-serving employee. For 28 years, Anne (pictured) dedicated her career to supporting children and families struggling with homelessness across Southern Massachusetts. Through your donation, you can pay tribute to a loved one while carrying on Anne’s legacy: to ensure our youngest neighbors struggling with homelessness receive the support they need to thrive.

If you have any questions regarding your donation please contact the Development Office at (508) 427-6448 or You can also mail donations to: Father Bill’s & MainSpring, 430 Belmont Street, Brockton, MA 02301.

Occasionally, we exchange our donor list with other qualified nonprofit organizations to offset fundraising expenses. If you would like your name to be removed from this exchange program, please email or make a note in the comment section when making a donation.
