Be A Volunteer

We need you.

In The Church

In the church, volunteers are present at all times to ensure that our guests are safe. It is during these times that parents have the opportunity to connect with volunteers. Many times our families have gone through great trauma before they have reached us. It is the volunteers, showing grace and love, that encourage and assist our families in building back their self-esteem and courage to face each day.

At the Day Center

The Day Center is the Command Central of Family Promise. It is a place that families come to organize themselves and their needs for the day. Volunteers can be utilized here in many different ways. Office Angels use their skills to serve as receptionists. Van Drivers and Trailer Haulers assist us in transporting families, beds, and their belongings to and from the church. We also have various positions that come up as needed. Give us a call if you are interested in learning more.

Volunteer Positions

Dinner Angel

Evening Hosts

Overnight Hosts

Van Driver

Trailer Hauler

Dinner Angels prepare a hot, informal meal that is prepared in the church’s kitchen or at volunteer’s homes and brought to the church. It is served at about 6 pm family style. Food preparations can be done as a group or individual. Suggestions and dietary restrictions are provided.

Evening Hosts welcome the guests for the evening, and eat dinner and socialize with the guests. They oversee the clean-up of the kitchen and dining area and remain on-site until the Overnight Hosts arrive. Evening hosts also ensure that the common areas are tidy at the end of the evening.

Overnight hosts spend the night at the host church and are the go-to people in case of emergency. They introduce themselves upon arrival, are on-hand to assist guests if needed, and know the time for the morning pick-up. These hosts ensure that the church common areas are left ready for the day.

The Van Driver picks up the Family Promise van, which is parked at the Day Center to collect the guest families to bring them to and from the host church. The morning pick up is 7 am at the host church, except for Saturday at 10 am. Afternoon pick-up is always at 5:00 p.m. at the Day Center.

The trailer is hauled each Sunday at 2 pm from host church to host church. This trailer holds all beds used for families and volunteers while staying at each church. The trailer can be hauled by either a personal vehicle or the Family Promise Van.

Words From Families

How do I get involved?

Is My Church a Part of Family Promise?

Family Promise is an excellent way for church volunteers to be the hands and feet of Jesus. Do you think this is a great ministry to get involved in? Ask you church leaders, “Are we a part of the Family Promise Network?”

I Would Like to Learn More.

We love to talk with groups of all kind about what Family Promise does and how it works. We have individuals from host coordinators, volunteers, previous guests, and staff who reach out to the community and share about the impact this organization makes on children and their familes.

Lets Have Lunch!

We would love to meet with your faith community leaders! Church leaders have many questions about how the Family Promise ministry can affect the church. We have those answers! Contact our office and set up an appointment!

Introduce Us to Your Friends.

After your church agrees to join the Family Promise Network, we will hold an informational meeting for your congregation. Through this meeting we will introduce Family Promise, explain who we work with, and train volunteers. From this point, your church is ready to host!
