Family Promise

Our church will be a host church

At the Nov. 3, 2016 meeting of the church’s Administrative Council, it was unanimously approved for the Cape Elizabeth United Methodist Church to be one of 13 faith communities that will make up the Portland affiliate of Family Promise.

As of December 2016, eight faith communities have agreed to be hosts for the Portland affiliate — a total of 13 is needed to get the program up and running.

Family Promise is the national program that assists homeless families with children. Each host faith community will provide 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.

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

Each host faith community will be assigned two partner organizations to assist on the weeks in which they are hosting. It has not been confirmed yet, but on our weeks of hosting aour partners may be St. Alban’s Episcopal Church and St. Bartholomew Church. The two Cape churches have expressed an interest in partnering with our church and have said they could provide up to 25 volunteers each.

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.
