Family Promise Homeless Shelter
June 3, 2018 @ 3:00 pm - June 30, 2018 @ 3:00 pm EDT
Old Bergen will be hosting four families in our church building this June for our second experience with Family Promise. For two weeks our upstairs rooms will serve as “home” for families who are in the midst of a homeless crisis. We provide a place for them to stay, an evening meal, and accompaniment during their time of need.
During the day the families are away at school, child care, work, and the Family Promise Day Center. They return to Old Bergen each evening around 6:00 PM and stay until the van picks them up at 6:30 AM.
We are in need of volunteers to:*prepare simple meals to be served at the church, *evening volunteers to accompany the families from 6 – 9 PM, and *overnight volunteers to stay on site overnight from 9:00 PM until 6:30 AM.
MANY THANKS TO THE NUMEROUS MEMBERS WHO PROVIDED MEALS, SUPPLIES, AND VOLUNTEERED EVENINGS AND OVERNIGHT ACCOMPANIMENT FOR THE TWO WEEKS OF OUR SHELTER. SPECIAL THANKS TO OUR VOLUNTEER COORDINATORS, JOHNNIE LOVEJOY AND WENDY BADREE.
