How do i set up a non profit organization to feed and lodge homeless and elderly.
First, you need to have a mission statement and a name for your organization. You need to also have a list of the bylaws for the organization which you will need to use so as to request to be allowed to start the organization by the states filing office. Once you are done with this, contact your city government so as to inquire if there will be a license required. See more details at http://money.howstuffworks.com/economics/volunteer/starting-a-charity/start-a-non-profit-organization1.htm.
And set up a 501 c 3. Non-profit organization with the IRS, so you can solicit for tax-deductible contributions.
Bless all of you! It's greatly needed everywhere!
