December 12 – 18 | Saint Barnabas

Family Promise is a program that helps homeless families who are motivated to get on the right path to a job and an apartment.

There are many ways to help and many hands needed during the week in which we are hosting. During this time, we provide lodging, all 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 families have a contact should they have a need (we prepare you and give you separate sleeping quarters), or donate needed supplies. Be a part of the journey back to stability and homeFULness.

Please contact Jane Gharibian at (602) 368-9138 or Tom Tischer at (480) 231-0782 for information.
