Saint Paul Family Promise 7/22-7/29/2018

St. Paul Family Promise

The St. Paul Parish Community is pleased to welcome Family Promise of Bergen County as our house guests for the week of July 22 to July 29, 2018.  Family Promise is the only organization in Bergen County that provides shelter and support to working families who become homeless. 

We will host up to 4 families, and up to 14 individuals from 5:00 PM on Sunday 7/22, until 7:30 AM the following Sunday morning, 7/29.  Many of the parishes and Houses of Worship in our surrounding towns have been partners with Family Promise for many years. The chance to host those in need is an opportunity St. Paul cannot pass up.

We seek at least 35 volunteers. Two people will stay overnight each night to assist with any emergencies.  Other people will be involved in preparing meals, and making sure that there is breakfast and lunch for the families when they leave each morning.  Children are also invited to socialize with our younger guests.  NOTE: Volunteers under the age of 18 must be accompanied by an adult.  Overnight hosts MUST BE CERTIFIED through the Protecting Gods Children program.  To sign up for a workshop to become certified please go to Virtus online.

Our guests will arrive each evening at 6:45 PM, hungry after a full day’s work.  After dinner, they will prepare their lunch for the following day.   They will enjoy down time with their family and any volunteers that may be available to provide a welcome environment.  Our young guests will be able to play on the playground or play games or read books in the cafeteria if the weather is an issue.

Please contact [email protected] or the Parish Office at 201-327-0976 with any questions. We are very excited about this opportunity to open the parish doors and let our love shine through.
