FAMILY PROMISE: Join St. Andrew Parish in Serving Homeless Families!
Beginning March 2016, our parish will have an opportunity to follow Jesus by serving the poor and vulnerable in a practical way. We will be partnering with the Family Promise program to provide temporary housing and other assistance to homeless families in our local region.
Family Promise St Andrew Committee
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?
Family Promise is coming in 2017 to St. Andrew. Again, we are asking for your time, talent, and love in hosting our next families. St. Andrew parish has formed a FAMILY PROMISE COMMITTEE with its first planning meeting scheduled for Monday, January 23, 2017 at 7PM at the Pastoral Center (140 Chestnut St). Come join us and find out how you can participate and welcome families who are experiencing homelessness. We need YOU.
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.
