Partnerships with local congregations provide Family Promise with food for the families in our program as well as nightly shelter. In addition, members from our partnering congregations volunteer their time to support the FPPC programs that assist our families on the path to sustainability! Truly the heart of our organization, our partnering congregations are proof that a loving and caring community CAN make a difference!
Hosting congregtions take turns for 1 week at a time (about once a quarter) hosting our families within the walls of their buildings. Each night, our families arrive at their congregation where volunteers provide dinner and spend time with our families.
