Family Promise is a joint venture in which several churches in Bucks County house and feed families with children in need of housing, for a week at a time, under the direction of and in conjunction with The Family Promise of Lower Bucks Day Center. Families may be entered into the program if they meet very specific criteria. The program can host any number of families totaling up to a maximum of fourteen individuals.
42 volunteers are needed to accomplish the task of housing a family for one week, 6 people per night: 2 people to prepare dinner each evening, 2 people to be present with the families through dinner and afterwards, and 2 people to sleep over each night. In order to be able to volunteer, individuals are asked to attend a short training (the next date is TBA) and provide clearances (please click here to access information about obtaining clearances). We are seeking additional volunteers from God’s Love to continue this opportunity to be in service and show Christian hospitality.
Our 2017 host weeks: February 19-26, April 23-30, July 30-August 6, November 12-19
