Family Promise Volunteers Needed

Family Promise Header

Faith Church will be partnering with Friedens UCC to host up to four families at Slumber Falls Camp the week of September 11 – 18, 2022.

Volunteers are needed to be present at the camp overnight (7pm-7am). We also need donations of breakfast and lunch items as well as someone willing to make a special breakfast for the families on Saturday morning.

Families in the program are always so glad to spend the week at Slumber Falls where they get to have their own cabins and get to experience a little of the great outdoors.

New volunteers will need to complete a background check through Family Promise and watch the two training videos. More information about signing up and completing the training will be coming soon.

Thank you from Family Promise

Your support is a true blessing  to families struggling with the challenges of homelessness.   To date, your generosity has helped 54 families, comprised of 165 individuals, transition from homelessness to secure, stable housing. With your help, another family may soon be back in a home again!  We are also grateful that during these difficult times, with the help of donors like yourself, we have been able to extend our ministry to families who are still housed but struggling financially.  We have been able to provide rental assistance, transportation assistance (help with a car payment or needed repair), and assistance with childcare expenses to vulnerable families.  Without your help, these families would be in danger of losing their homes.

Thank you for choosing to support families in need    Sincerely, Sarah Dixon, Executive Director, 

Family Promise of Greater New Braunfels

Family Promise Update

If it were not for the COVID-19 virus we would soon be hosting Family Promise families but that is not to be this year but the work of Family Promise still goes on. Currently  two families are being housed at the Family Promise Day Center itself. On a recent zoom call Family Promise said they have tentatively set September 1st as the date they will start hosting families in churches once again, although this could change if there is  strong second wave of COVID-19. 

Since we will not be hosting families at the church or at the camp this summer the Faith Church council will be voting to donate funds from our Family Promise fund to Family Promise.  The amount will be determined at the June Council meeting on June 9th. 

We are also encouraging Faith Church members to consider making a donation to Family Promise directly. This would in lieu of providing gift cards, or food for the families we would normally be hosting. You can donate to Family Promise through the church  or go directly to the Family Promise website and donate there.  Here is the link:   https://www.fpgnb.org/. The later will get your donation to them quicker. You can also use the above link to sign up for the Family Promise Newsletter.  Simply go to the very bottom of the web page and sign up.
