SD/HI/SA Family Promise

Family Promise July 29-August 12

Two Weeks of Family Promise!

Dear Volunteers:

We have a special situation coming up: two weeks of Family Promise, instead of the usual one week. There was a gap in the schedule, with no congregations assigned to the week of July 29. Under such circumstances, the program normally finds a hotel for the families for the week, but that is expensive and quickly depletes the resources of Family Promise, so we were asked if we would take on the week of July 29 through August 5, right before our scheduled week of August 5 through August 12. It is a leap of faith to do two weeks, but we agreed. We are hoping that we have the volunteer resources to make this extraordinary situation a success!

At the moment, Family Promise is hosting two mothers and their children. Sherry has 4 children, aged 1 to 16 years. Latoya has 5 children, aged 2 months to 11 years. We will let you know if this changes before July 29. No one has allergies.

For those who took such good care of Booker and Rita, you will be happy to know that they finally were able to move into their brand-new apartment in Cumming. They check in regularly with Family Promise staff members, and they are doing well!

Please see below the many ways that you can help during our two weeks in late July and early August-- by bringing and serving meals, spending the night, and other ways.

Don't hesitate to call one of the coordinators named below if you have any questions or suggestions.

Thank you for all that you do!
