Family Promise


Our church host again, Jan. 28-Feb. 4

Our church is one of 13 faith communities that make up the Greater Portland Family Promise affiliate, a national program that assists homeless families with children.

Each host faith community provides an evening meal, a place to sleep, a light breakfast, and a bag lunch for four families — totaling no more than 14 individuals — for a week at a time, four times a year.





Our church has hosted families in August and October and will next host families Jan. 28-Feb. 4, 2018.


During our first week of hosting, bedrooms were set up in the back of the Sanctuary, in the Chapel and in the Sunday School room. For the second week, when we hosted six adults and eight children, a fourth bedroom was added in the Nursery.



In addition to our church, the other faith communities that have committed to being Family Promise hosts are:

*** First Congregational Church in South Portland

*** HopeGateWay United Methodist Church in Portland

*** Clark Memorial United Methodist Church in Portland

*** Woodfords Congregational Church in Portland

*** Congregation Bet Ha’am in South Portland

***  St. Ansgar Lutheran Church in Portland

*** Allen Avenue Unitarian Universalist Church in Portland

*** Williston-Immanuel United Church, Portland

*** Portland Friends Meeting, Portland

*** Westbrook Warren Congregational Church, Westbrook

*** Saint Anthony’s of Padus Catholic Church, Westbrook


Each host faith community will be assigned two partner organizations to assist on the weeks in which they are hosting. Our partners are St. Alban’s Episcopal Church and St. Bartholomew Church.

Nationally, Family Promise has more than 200 affiliates in 42 states. The Portland affiliate would be the first in Maine. The closest current affiliate is in Portsmouth, New Hampshire, which has two affiliates.
