Become a Host


Family Promise’s shelter program relies on a partnership of interfaith congregations and other volunteer groups to help local families facing homelessness. Family Promise offer on-site shelters for the families. Our Hosts assist in preparing meals and hospitality to families in need. In the evening, volunteers provide dinner and spend some quality time to our guests. The evening hours are for homework, relaxing and family fun time, as they would be with any family. Each day ends with the family all together, under one roof.

The Hospitality Center


Center Host

Local houses of worship and organizations provide shelter support. Volunteers may be:


  • Cooking and hosting dinner

  • Coordinating children’s crafts & activities

Manageable Commitment

Here at Family Promise we work our hardest to make your commitment as easy as possible.

  • Guests consist up to four families

In this role:

  • Your congregation/group will support a host/group congregation. This support can be monetary, donating time, food preparation, etc.
