WHAT DO HOST CONGREGATIONS DO?
About four to six times a year -- for one week at a time -- host congregations provide...
Hosting rotates among the host congregations, which provide lodging for 1-4 families (up to 14 individuals) from 5 p.m. until 7 a.m. the next morning. Hosting also involves two volunteers staying overnight with the guest families (each family in its own room). The host congregation provides bedding for the guests (beds provided by Family Promise) and for the overnight hosts. Host congregations sign a commitment with Family Promise outlining their program participation.
We also have support congregations who help out with volunteers and food.
Want to get involved as a volunteer with your church? Every host congregation has a volunteer coordinator who can get you started; check the list of host congregations below, contact your church, and check the home page for the next volunteer training!

Not a member of a church right now? Not religious? Not a problem! There is no faith requirement to become a volunteer. Furthermore, we encourage an environment where our guests and our volunteers do not have to worry about unsolicited proselytizing. If you'd like to join our list of unaffiliated volunteers, to be called when needed, get in touch at the bottom of this page!
