TKE Membership

Family Promise June 2021

UPDATE:

TKE will be hosting Family Promise June 13-20.  Our procedures have been redesigned to be completely contactless for the safety of the families and volunteers.  We will not have the families on the TKE property. Instead, they will be housed at St. Catherine's Episcopal Church at 571 Holt Road, less than 3 miles from TKE.  St. Catherine's can accommodate 2 families with separate bedrooms and bathrooms and also has space for overnight hosts in a nearby building. 

The 1 or 2 families we will serve are currently being vetted by our Family Promise case worker. Their health will be monitored during their stay. We do not know if the adults have been vaccinated yet, but certainly the young children will not have gotten their shots. If any of them become ill, FP has protocols in place for isolation and protection of others.

VOLUNTEERS NEEDED:

Dinner cooks will have contactless delivery and will drop off meals on the porch.  A mini fridge and/or coolers will be provided for drop off. Food should be packaged in disposable containers and meals should be simple and not require any cooking by the families. 

Overnight hosts will be provided with masks, gloves, and cleaning supplies to use before and after their stay.  Feel free to bring your own if you prefer.  Overnight hosts will be asked to complete a short survey about their current health before arriving onsite.

We will also need a few folks to help on 6/20 to load out the cots and pack the van.

We understand that everyone has a different ideas of acceptable risk levels now.  We want you to know that if TKE doesn't have enough folks who are comfortable with participating, FP will call on other congregations in our Cobb County network to fill the volunteer needs. We appreciate your support of the Family Promise program and hope you and your family stay safe and healthy.

GENERAL INFORMATION ABOUT FAMILY PROMISE:

TKE is proud to support Family Promise of Cobb County, an affiliate of Family Promise (national) founded in 1986 to serve families in transition.  The Family Promise Network brings shelter, meals and support services to families with children who are without homes.  

"Transforming the lives of homeless families.  Because every child deserves a home."

Temple Kol Emeth, together with 14 other congregations in Cobb County, is committed to providing the safe space these families need as they transition towards more permanent housing.

Our next host week is Sunday, June 13 through Sunday, June 20.  To be successful, we need your help as volunteers!  You will find volunteer opportunities listed below, as well as the highly encouraged online orientation for new volunteers.  

We look forward to working with you to help these families within our community who need our help!
