Family Promise’s mission is to help homeless and low-income families achieve sustainable independence through a community-based response.
We here at Countryside can do our part by providing food, shelter, and support for these homeless families. We’ve committed to caring for 4 families for one week, right upstairs in our church! This, combined with similar support from 13 other area churches and organizations will help ensure these families can stay together and break the cycle of homelessness.
Volunteers play an essential role in helping our guests attain sustainable independence by sharing time and meals with children and their families, offering them community and support as they work towards sustainable independence.
Volunteer Roles include:
- Meal Coordinators and Preparers which provide hot, nutritious food for children and families who may not otherwise have a nourishing meal.
- Overnight Hosts help children with homework, stay with families overnight, and help them get their mornings off to a great start. (This is usually a one-night commitment.)
- Supply Coordinators make sure that we have all of the items that we need to house the families for a week.
- Games / Activities Hosts will facilitate fun activities for the kids (Friday evening only).
