Family Promise

greater-portland_logo-no-tag

Our church host again, April 22-29

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.

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.

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.
