Get started as a Family Promise Volunteer

There are so many ways to support Family Promise!

Check out our Wish List

Donations really matter here.  We encourage you to check out our wish list, see if you have any new or gently used items you could part with and share our wish list around with your networks.  Better yet, pick a critical item on our wish list and organize a donation drive on our behalf!

Bring Our Families a Meal

Volunteers bring balanced, home-cooked dinners to our guests 365 days a year.  Your support is critical to our program's success and we are in constant need of volunteers.

Sign up to bring a meal to the guests at our Day Center and help them get the nutrition they need to succeed!

Sponsor a Child

Help bring some sparkle into a child's experience in shelter.   Things sponsors do are help make a birthday in shelter special, off-set the cost of summer camp, ensure a child has adequate school supplies and uniforms, donate a winter coat to a child, etc.  Little acts of kindness can make a big impact in a child's life.

Adopt a Family

"Adopt" one of our families and become a special support for them as they work towards stability.  Little acts of kindness - like flowers on Mother's Day - or big acts - like fulfilling items off a family's wish list for moving into a new apartment - can make a significant impact in the life of one of our families and restore hope.
