Becoming a Hosting Congregation or Organization
VOLUNTEERS OF ALL KINDS 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, this is an essential asset that helps ensure our families can save potential resources for when they move into housing. Each day ends with the family all together, under one roof thanks to the community meal provided.
Local congregations and organizations provide:
A dinner for 7 nights a week in a rotating model. Usually enough to feed 8-12 people.
With the help of others this rotation can be every 6 weeks to once a year, depending on the amount of congregations and organizations participating.
Support through volunteer programs and fundraising.
Donating necessary supplies for the hosting week.
Family Promise is continually adding volunteers to the rotation
Each congregation hosts families for just one week.
Family Promise runs criminal background checks and drug screenings on all program participants
