Family Promise is an interfaith hospitality network to help homeless families achieve lasting independence. With support from local congregations, they provide food, shelter and assistance with obtaining employment and housing.
24 Hour Fixed Space for Service to Homeless Families
Our networks of congregations and volunteers meet homeless families’ immediate needs for shelter, meals, and comprehensive support services.
To prevent and alleviate homelessness, we train volunteers to help at-risk families achieve goals and maintain self-sufficiency.
We cooperate with and refer families to needed community resources, such as job training, health care services, childcare and literacy.
Volunteers work together to promote community practices and initiatives that alleviate poverty and improve the well-being of low-income families.
Big Brothers Big Sisters of Delaware County
Kids facing adversity in their lives need the motivation to take on new challenges, the resilience to turn adversity into strength, and the grit to persevere. Without these character strengths as a foundation, they may not attain graduation and post-secondary career and academic success. By partnering with parents/caregivers, schools, businesses and community organizations, and, of course, volunteers from our community, Big Brothers Big Sisters Delaware County helps kids facing adversity in our community achieve success. Big Brothers Big Sisters is a great organization where you can let a child make a difference in your life while you make a difference in theirs. It does take a commitment (18 months, 2 times per month), but the payoff is huge.
There are at least 50 children on the waiting list for a Big Brother or Big Sister. Make an impact!
