Established in 2009 The Gene and Evelyn Kelsey Fund for Hancock Christian Clearing House (HCCH) was established as a seed fund by the HCCH board of directors in honor of the couple.

Gene served in a volunteer role as President of HCCH from 1994-1999, and in 1999 accepted the position of Executive Director, a job he still holds. Evelyn volunteered with HCCH for ten years before taking on the role of Emergency Services Coordinator for HCCH.This fund was established in honor of Gene and Evelyn’s many years of dedication to Hancock Christian Clearing House. The purpose of the fund is to support HCCH’s programs which aim to meet emergency needs including assisting Hancock County residents who are homeless, unemployed, working at low-income jobs, disabled, without heath insurance, or others experiencing financial crisis.
