A community response

Our remaining dates for Family Promise for 2017 are:

June 11-18
October 1-8


The Family Promise program brings shelter, meals and support services to families without homes through a network of local congregations. This ministry is vital because families are the fastest growing segment of the homeless population.  This local ministry allows these families to move from church to church weekly and have a roof over their head and a safe place to sleep as they work to become self sustaining again.
