an opportunity to serve families without a home in your community

 

Family Promise of Warren County (FPWC) opened its doors in October 1998 to serve families in Warren County experiencing homelessness. Through our Shelter Program FPWC has provided a program of accountability and responsibility for over 25 years so families with children experiencing homelessness can become housed and self-sufficient. We accomplish this goal through dedicated staff and the assistance of many volunteers from congregations, businesses, organizations, clubs, and other groups who provide meals, fellowship, and overnight support to the families in our Shelter Program. These volunteers from congregations, organizations, and businesses also provide mentorship, care and concern to the families we are blessed to serve.

The Opportunity

Prospective volunteer groups covering one night of meals, fellowship, and overnight support.

The Ambassador will be in contact with the lead person in your group approximately three week prior to the hosing date to start the guidance process

Working with a seasoned volunteer or "Ambassador" who:

  • provides guidance on meal choices, activities, and overnight. 

  • answers any questions you may have leading up to the hosting date.

  • is present throughout your time to provide additional support.
