Family Promise Volunteers

Through Family Promise, First Church provides hospitality to homeless families and helps keep them together in a time of crisis.  Volunteer opportunities include: dinner preparers, evening hosts, overnight hosts, Saturday breakfast preparer, Saturday hosts, set-up, tear down, and laundry.

    • First
    • Last

  • Family Promise/IHN Volunteers

    I can help in the following ways:
  • Sunday set-up – set up living quarters before guests arrive after church on Sunday
  • Evening hosts – eat and spend the evening with the guests 5:00-8:30 pm (Sat. 4:00-8:30 pm)
  • Overnight hosts – stay overnight at church with the guests 8:30 pm-7:30 am
  • Dinner preparation – bring in a hot meal or make one at church to be served at 6:00 pm
  • Friday greeter – meet & greet our guests from 4 to 6 pm as they arrive on Friday
  • Saturday breakfast preparer – make breakfast for guests on Saturday
  • Saturday hosts – plan and oversee various activities in which guests may participate (such as playing games, craft-making, visiting the Children’s Museum, or in-house movies).
    We’re trying something new: splitting up Saturdays into short stints of volunteering and giving the opportunity for those interested to shadow someone in the job. We need volunteers and shadows!
  • Sunday take-down – take down living quarters on Sunday after guests leave.
  • Laundry – take linens home and wash them after the week is over
