As part of a network of area churches, we host families who are transitioning out of homelessness for a week at a time, 3-4 times per year, right here at Saint Barnabas.
During that week, we provide their lodging, all their meals, and lots of fellowship and encouragement. Family Promise is one of only a few programs that work intentionally to keep families together as they experience homelessness, and their model has a 70% success rate.
You can help in lots of ways: plan and/or cook a meal, donate food, stay overnight so they have a contact should they have a need (we prepare you and give you separate sleeping quarters), bring an activity for the children to do, play music or a movie for them to encourage their rest and joy, bring in travel sizes of soap, shampoo, etc. so they can take it with them, or simply be a friend to our guests as they dine together. Get to know them on their journey back to stability and homeFULness.
