Be a Host Group


Family Promise’s shelter program relies on a partnership of interfaith congregations and other volunteer service  groups to help local families facing homelessness. Our hosts are responsible to collaborate at the Family Housing Center by assisting with the dinner meal  and providing hospitality to families in need.  


For families in the program, each day begins with breakfast prepared in their kitchens followed by a work with the support specialists on their housing plan.  In the evening, guests return to the Family Housing Center , where volunteers provide dinner and spend some quality time. The evening hours are for homework, relaxing and family fun time, as they would be with any family. Each day ends with the family all together, in their own room, with their own bathroom,  under one roof. 

Volunteer Groups

Local congregations and organizations provide support for the Family Housing Center.   A host group of volunteers may be involved with the following:


  • Providing salads and desserts for the dinner meal

  • Serving and cleaning up after dinner meal 

  • Acting as evening host to admit residents into the building between 8 and 10 pm (one volunteer  works with a paid staff) 

  • Laundry- washing towels and bedding after residents move out. 

  • Providing support in the form of gas cards, gift cards and celebratory supplies.

  • Each volunteer group provides support for just one week, four times a year​


  • Congregations/ organizations can be teamed up with other organizations to share the workload through the week.
