Faith Communities are Essential to our Hospitality Network

Family Promise of WNY unites volunteers to form our hospitality network - over 500 hands and hearts which come together to form the backbone of our organization.  Our primary partners are faith communities.   We believe religious institutions have an essential role to play in lifting up our community.  Our program is based on the value of hospitality that is found in every religious tradition and provides the framework which allows volunteers to put their faith into action in order to directly minister to some of the most vulnerable members of our community.
