VOLUNTEERS OF ALL FAITHS CHANGING LIVES

Family Promise of Bradley County's shelter program relies on a partnership of interfaith congregations and other volunteer groups to help local families facing homelessness. Our host sites provide meals and hospitality to families in need. Due to COVID-19, our program has been altered greatly.

Families are now housed at a local hotel. Volunteer groups commit to serving our families for one week at a time, four times per year by providing meals, supplies and a smiling friendly face to families in the shelter program. This is a precious gift to our families as they are working hard to overcome obstacles. 

HOST GROUPS

Local volunteer groups provide meals and supplies to families in need. A host congregation team of volunteers may be involved with the following:

 

  • Cooking and delivering dinner

  • Provide specific needs for families like tutoring kids, teaching a class, or writing an encouraging letter

  • Coordinating children’s crafts & activities

  • Donating necessary supplies for the hosting week​

MANAGEABLE COMMITMENT

  • Families stay at a hotel, not in the church

  • Each congregation hosts families for just one week, four times a year

  • Guests consist of only two to four families   (14 children & adults max)

  • Family Promise runs criminal background checks and drug screenings on all program participants

We need your help! Can your faith group become a host or support congregation?
