About Tom Fredenburg
In May 2019, the Concord community lost one of its most dedicated and relentless leaders for the goals of ending homelessness and serving those in need: Tom Fredenburg. It was Tom’s vision and generosity that made it possible for the Concord Coalition to End Homelessness (CCEH) to purchase this building, now being used for the Concord Homeless Resource Center, and to build the new Emergency Winter Shelter in the back yard.
Ellen Groh, CCEH Executive Director said, “Tom’s contributions to the CCEH mission over the years are countless. He served in so many ways- providing legal advice at the Resource Center to people struggling with homelessness; as a dedicated member of the Board of Directors; and as an all-around handyman for the property, constantly making improvements so it could better serve our guests. He put his own personal funds at risk while CCEH figured out how we could raise the money to buy the property. He is dearly missed, but his legacy lives on.”
