Think there are no homeless children in Palm Beach County? Think again.
Better yet, learn how you can help …. through the Family Promise Program.
Grace Community Church partners with Family Promise of South Palm Beach County, a charitable organization composed of host congregations of many religious denominations. The program provides temporary shelter, meals, and compassionate support to homeless families with children. The ultimate goal is to help each family survive an economically challenging transition period and to provide them with the tools to once again achieve sustained self sufficiency and lasting independence.
Our church hosts the Family Promise families approximately once every three months. The families live at our facility for one week, at which point they move on to the next participating congregation. The volunteer opportunities are plentiful and we’ve found that just about anyone can lend a helping hand. Family Promise volunteers at Grace Community Church have ranged in age from young children to our most senior members. If you like spending time with people, can answer or make telephone calls, can cook a meal or drive a van or simply give a child a hug, we have a spot for you.
