Lake Nokomis Lutheran Church

Familes Moving Forward August 4-11, 2019

Join Lake Nokomis Lutheran Church in welcoming four families in need of safe housing. Provide a week of shelter and hospitality at Lake Nokomis Lutheran to four families experiencing homelessness. Team up with more than 50 volunteers to:

  • Set up sleeping and activity spaces the week of July 29
  • Prepare and serve dinners
  • Plan and coordinate activities for adults and kids
  • Be an overnight host and set up grab-and-go breakfasts
  • Take down sleeping and activity spaces after church on Sunday, August 11

Who can volunteer?

  • Adults
  • Youth
  • Your children - provided they don't require parent's full time attention
  • Invite your friends to volunteer with you

Training is provided for all new adult and youth volunteers.

Each new adult volunteer must also complete a Safe Place Policy and background check form.

The Families Moving Forward team will provide a brief orientation for new volunteers.
