Family Promise of Green Country is an organization dedicated to helping the homeless and low income families achieve sustainable independence. With the help of many churches in Green Country, including Union Presbyterian Church, Family Promise works to provide overnight accommodations at a local congregation; 3 meals a day; intensive case management; support through the Family Day Center/office with internet access, guest phone, laundry and showers; transportation assistance to school, work, etc.; social support from volunteers; and linkage with needed social and educational services.
UPC is one of 14 “host” churches which provide housing for homeless folks for one week at a time, on a rotating basis (we usually host about 4 times a year). We can always use help from people willing to prepare and serve meals, clean laundry, stay as an overnight host, etc. Family Promise has been becoming more and more established and has seen many hopeful results.
