The Family Promise Network Program brings shelter, meals, and support services to families without homes.
Guests use a local Day Center from approximately 7:30 AM to 5:00 PM, where the Family Promise Network Director, a professional social worker, provides case management services. There, guests pursue employment, tend pre-school children, shower, and do laundry. The day center provides guests with a mailing address and a base for housing and employment searches. Many guests are employed during the day, while older children attend school.
The hosting of families rotates weekly among the Host Congregations in the Network. In turn, each host congregation provides lodging, three meals a day, and caring hospitality 3-4 times a year. The ideal number of Hosting Congregations is 13. The Support Congregations may not have the physical space available to Host, but provide much needed volunteers, supplies and finances.
