Emmanuel Baptist Church
Family Promise is an interfaith hospitality network that helps provide homeless families with shelter, meals, and support services. Many volunteers are needed to help make this possible. At EBC, Evening Hosts will have dinner with the guests and will socialize with guests including possibly helping with homework, conduct children's activities, or assisting a guest with a particular need. Overnight Hosts will spend time with guests, assist with any needs that arise and will sleep overnight in the church. Meal Preparation teams will prepare dinner and are welcome to stay and have dinner with the guests as well. We will contact Meal Prep volunteers to coordinate meal plans. Set up and Take Down teams will assist in setting up and/or taking down the guest rooms. Laundry team will assist in washing all the bedding and towels from the week (this may be done at a laundromat and money and supplies will be provided). We would like at least one laundry volunteer to come to set up and take down if possible. All volunteers working with guests will be sent a background check form to complete (if they haven't already completed one for other EBC positions).
