The opportunity to make a difference
Every day, Family Promise connects people who want to help with opportunities to make a difference. You don’t need to donate thousands of dollars or hundreds of hours of service to make a difference. In fact, you can make a meaningful change for your neighbors in need with one hour of volunteer work or a single donation of clothing, food, or furniture. Won’t you join us?
Make a Financial Contribution.
Family Promise maintains low operating costs, but still relies on the generosity of local individuals, service clubs, businesses, and congregations for support. Each dollar donated is matched by more than $3 of in-kind goods and services.
Make It Personal. Volunteer.
There are lots of ways for volunteers to participate in Family Promise. Training and orientation are provided for all volunteers.
Host Congregations: Host Congregation volunteers provide hospitality to Family Promise guest families through their congregations. These volunteers provide meals, overnight hospitality, and a friendly face. Host churches often provide financial support to Family Promise.
Support Congregations: Support Congregations provide in kind resources or financial support without hosting.
Volunteer Coordinator (VC): Each Host Congregation has a volunteer who coordinates hosting activities for their congregation. Volunteer Coordinators work closely with Family Promise staff to meet the needs of guest families.
House Warming: These volunteers donate furniture, gather household supplies for guest families and help transport furniture when families are ready to move into their new homes.
Family Center Volunteer: Assist with office needs such as answering phones as well as assisting our guest families while at the Family Center.
Special Events/Board Committees: Family Promise needs many volunteers who are interested in assisting with special events or serving on a Board committee. Board committees include: Development, Public Relations, Finance, Nominations, Personnel and Special Events.
Teach Classes for Guest Families: Teach classes in parenting, budgeting, nutrition, computer skills, art or anything else you can dream up!
