To reduce the spread of COVID-19, we are suspending all visitors and volunteers from entering the shelter until further notice. Thank you for all of your support. We are currently not in need of any donations. We hope that you and your family stay safe and healthy during this time.
Make milestones extra special for our families by helping to celebrate birthdays in shelter! We want to ensure that each child has an opporunity to have their special day.
Help provide birthday magic with us. Shoot us an email through the form below.
Birthdays are not the only special days! We want to make sure that everything from Christmas to Easter, to 4th of July, to back to school, to Halloween is fun and memorable for our families in shelter.
Join us in providing materials and running fun activities!
On Saturdays, we invite volunteers into the building to do some fun activities around the shelter - bake a special treat with our kids, organize an amazing craft, help garden or plug in in other ways.
Help us with one of our most critical and exciting jobs... Moving families into their new homes! We need strong and reliable volunteers to help.
Check out the description below.
Get involved on weekdays after school to offer help in math, read a book or play games. This opportunity often depends on the needs of our families staying with us.

We invite groups once-a-month to come onsite for a tour, service projects and the chance to learn first hand about the issue of family homelessness.
Groups can also host fundraisers and donation drives on our behalf within their own communities. We welcome corporations, schools and faith communities to contact us to get the conversation started.
Fill out our Volunteer Information Form so we can learn your interests and availability.
We will get back to you within 48 hours!
A great way for groups to do some Community Service is with our Welcome Home Team. The third Saturday of each month Family Promise takes furniture to families who have moved out of our homeless shelter and into their own homes.
Volunteering would mean that a group adopts one of the Saturday's of the year, brings about 6-8 strong and able volunteers. The group will pick up furniture around the Buffalo community with a U-Haul and deliver the furniture to our families' homes.
The day starts at 9:30 am at Family Promise and goes no later than 2 pm.
Why is this important?
When our families leave our shelter they often leave in need of kitchen tables, chairs, couches, beds, to name the biggest items. We have gracious donors who give us amazing pieces of furniture, but need help transporting this furniture!
This is why we have formed a volunteer base to help support our families get into the home they want.
Groups may sign up for this volunteer opportunity as far in advance as needed. Please send us an email using the form below for additional information.
