Family Promise

Working together with the non-profit Family Promise and other area congregations, our FUSD community provides church-based shelter, food, transportation, and hospitality for families who are experiencing homelessness on their way to self-sufficiency. We host families for a one-week period four times each year. Volunteer opportunities include: Making a main dish, side dish, or dessert, then joining the families and other volunteers for an evening meal; driving families to or from the Family Promise day site in the morning or late afternoon; transforming RE classrooms into cozy bedrooms so each family has its own private space. We also need help in between our hosting weeks: wash blankets, sew a curtain, setup and maintain volunteer information, help plan and coordinate activities. Whatever you enjoy doing, however you shine, we have a place for you! Contact with any questions.
