Family Promise: Volunteers

Next hosting week is June 4–11

Help offer safe, welcoming shelter in our Family Life Center to parents and children who are homeless.  Parish volunteers will provide hot meals and hospitality to about 14 guests June 4th-11th.  As part of a faith-based family shelter program, SMM partners with Family Promise of Greater Orlando to help families experiencing homelessness achieve self-sufficiency. Families working with Family Promise caseworkers to attain permanent housing are offered short-term shelter in host congregations. SMM hosts families during 4 weeks spread throughout the year. Register for an orientation session Teen volunteers are invited to a Training for High School Volunteers on Thursday, June 1 at 6:30 PM.  If you are already trained as an SMM Family Promise volunteer, visit our website to choose your volunteer position for this visit.
