VOLUNTEERS OF ALL FAITHS CHANGING LIVES

Family Promise’s shelter program relies on a partnership of interfaith congregations and other volunteer groups to help local families facing homelessness. Our host sites provide meals and hospitality to families in need. For families in the program, each day begins with breakfast at our new family center. In the evening, guests return to the family center, where volunteers provide dinner and spend some quality time. The evening hours are for homework, relaxing and family fun time, as they would be with any family. Each day ends with the family all together, under one roof.

HOST CONGREGATIONS

Local houses of worship provide meals and fellowship. A host congregation team of volunteers may be involved with the following:

 

  • Cooking and hosting dinner

  • Spending the evening with families, talking, tutoring kids or playing games

  • Coordinating children’s crafts & activities

  • Donating necessary supplies for the hosting week

MANAGEABLE COMMITMENT

  • Each congregation hosts families for just one week, four times a year

  • Guests consist of only two to four families   (14 children & adults max)

  • Family Promise runs criminal background checks and drug screenings on all program participants

 

We need your help! Can your faith group become a host or support congregation?
