helping the homeless
Family Promise Week
Family Promise is an organization that seeks to provide the homeless with meals and shelter right here in Branch County and in other cities across the U.S. They utilizes local churches who volunteer to host the homeless for a week at a time throughout the year.
Family Promise is equipped to help up to 14 people at a time. They provides the beds, bedding, blankets and pillows, as well as a place to stay during the day (with showers, a phone, etc.) and the church provides the overnight facility, evening meals, and volunteers to act as hosts.
Many volunteers are needed... provide breakfast foods, provide meals, spend time at the church in the evenings or stay overnight as a host.
To sign up or for more information, you may call the church office 517-639-8118.
