Description

The Family Promise Network Program brings shelter, meals, and support services to families without homes.

Day Center:
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.

Host/Support Congregations:
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.
