Burns Residential Campaign

Help Us End Homelessness

  Nelson Suzanne Burns  

To celebrate Nelson Burns' 30 years at the helm of Coleman Professional Services, Nelson and Suzanne Burns have pledged to match up to $30,000 in contributions to support the ending of homelessness through permanent supportive housing. Their gift and the story of Coleman's remarkable accomplishments during his tenure as CEO are described in the September 26, 2015 news article in the Record Courier. 

"In 30 years, we've built more than 200 permanent living spaces for our clients. Most recently, we've renovated the Phoenix Building in Ravenna, and built Union Square in Lima to add 34 apartments. But our work is not done. Please join Suzanne and me in our quest to end homelessness."     - Nelson Burns

Coleman has 2 funds dedicated to this cause:

William and Arlene Burns Residential Endowment
Created in 1994, the endowment honors Bill and Arlene Burns, Nelson's parents, who have devoted their lives to helping others. The endowment has generated over $100,000 to help fund the building of supportive living environments and other permanent housing options for individuals with mental illness.

Burns Family Residential Fund
Created in 2015 by Nelson and Suzanne Burns, this fund provides support such as emergency utility payments and rent subsidies to tenants of Coleman living spaces to insure that housing for all is stable, permanent, and secure.
