These volunteer opportunities will be after 5:30pm on weekdays or on weekend and will include the following duties:

  • Serving dinner

  • Spending time with the guests

  • Staying overnight with the guests (in the host room; each family has their own private room)

  • Bringing dry goods (this could be done anytime of the day)

Volunteer as a Family

Family Promise is a very family-friendly volunteer opportunity! Make and serve a dinner as a family or have a “sleep over”  with  your kids at the congregations!  There are many safe and fun ways to engage your children in volunteering for Family Promise and learning about homelessness.

Volunteer Coordinator

Each Host and Support 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.

Volunteer for Special Events/Board Committees

Family Promise needs many volunteers who are interested in assisting with special events or serving on a Board committee.

Train Guest Families

Teach classes in parenting, budgeting, nutrition, computer skills, art or anything else you can dream up!

“Each time we make room for strangers, we chip away at the fear and isolation and heartbreak in our world. We also get to participate in something that is life giving, both to us and the people we welcome.”
