Family Promise St Andrew Committee

Family Promise.png

What would you do if you and your family found yourselves without a home? Hear from some of our families about the challenges they faced. Learn how Family Promise SGV, with congregations and supporters from across our community, are helping families regain homes and lives. www.familypromisesgv.org

Do you feel a calling to serve homeless families in our community?  Would you like more information about how to be part of St. Andrew Parish's outreach to homeless families?  

The Gospel of Matthew reminds us: "Amen, I say to you, whatever you did for one of these least brothers of mine, you did for me." (Mt, 25,40). As a parish community, we reflect these holy words in our mission statement when together we declare our dedication to connect our faith in Jesus Christ with service to others.

The newly formed Family Promise Ministry of St. Andrew Church seeks to make this statement a reality through the provision of temporary overnight shelter to vulnerable homeless families right here, in our parish facilities.

WHAT IS FAMILY PROMISE?
There are 178 Family Promise affiliates in 41 states across the country. Family Promise’s mission is “to help homeless children by assisting their families to stay intact and to regain stable housing and employment within a supportive, volunteer-driven community.” Family Promise holds dear the core values of hospitality, empowerment, compassion, mobilizing communities, and hope.

OPPORTUNITY FOR US TO SERVE TOGETHER
This is a great opportunity for us as parishioners to serve together. It’s a wonderful way for our families to participate in ministry, instilling in our children the care and respect that God has for the poor and vulnerable. We are also asking that different parish ministries sponsor a day on which to provide meals and other materials or services for the families who will be staying with us. This is a chance to exercise any gifts or talents you might have for the benefit of neighbors who are trying to transition out of a difficult situation.
