NEXT FBC HOST WEEK - March 2nd - 9th, 2014
What is Family Promise?
Family Promise of Hall County is a nonprofit organization that helps homeless children and their families. Our mission is to help put an end to homelessness one family at a time.
We do this through a network of congregations that host these families directly in their houses of worship, staffed by caring volunteers who have put their faith into action.
We accepted our first homeless family on May 20, 2012. Our first graduation was celebrated in July of 2012. Since then, we have hosted 11 families and seen nearly 30 children move into safe, stable homes. Learn more at www.familypromisehall.org

How Can I help?
First Baptist serves as a host church for Family Promise families a few times a year. When the families stay with us, they are housed in the youth area classrooms. There are many ways to help each time we host the families.
Set-up and break-down
We need help unloading beds and furniture to set up for the families to use for the week. We also need extra hands the end Sunday of the week to help load the beds and furniture back on the truck and set up the rooms before youth Sunday school.
Prepare and Serve a Meal
Each night, we provide a hot dinner for the families staying with us. This is a great opportunity for a Sunday School class, group of friends, or even a family to serve!
We need volunteers to spend time with the families during the evening hours. This time involves getting to know the parents, playing games with the children, and sometimes helping them with homework.
There is a need for church members to spend the night in case an emergency or need arises.
Do you have access to a fun weekend activity for the parents and children? This occurs on Saturday. Some examples: taking the women for manicures, horseback riding, bowling, swimming, fishing, hiking, etc. If you would like to spend some recreation time with the families, please let us know!
