“Never anyone so dear as a
Family Promise Volunteer”
Volunteers are the heart of each Family Promise of Bryan County. Our devoted volunteers will help us offer shelter, meals and other assistance to children and their families for about one-third the cost of traditional shelters. Family Promise keeps families together and provides them with a safe, supportive and home-like environment.
Family Promise volunteers become a personal support system to homeless families in the network. They share contacts for jobs and housing, help write resumes, prepare for job interviews, donate clothing and furniture, and subsidize security deposits. These supportive relationships often continue after the families leave the network. Because of the involvement and dedication of our volunteers, they will help us provide assistance in guiding our clients to a stable life.
We offer a wide range of volunteer activities to fit varying schedules and levels of commitment. Our program allows families to volunteer together, from grandparents to young children.
“The very first meeting about bringing Family Promise to our community brought tears to my eyes, and my heart knew this is what we are called to do as individuals, as a church, as a community. My daughter said after our first meeting, We HAVE to this. It is what we are called to do!"
