Family Promise (Interfaith Hospitatlity Network of Augusta, Inc.)

Our mission at Family Promise is to mobilize a network of religious congregations to help homeless families achieve and sustain independence. St. Mary’s is one of 24 churches in the area involved in this effort. Our involvement includes hosting three families (up to 14 people) in the Annunciation House 2 times a year. This entails set up and take down of furnishings and household items to create a clean and safe sleeping environment and a lounge area to relax, watch TV, do home work … We also provide a hot dinner which volunteers share with our guests. The dinner volunteers also care for the children while the parents attend life skill, parenting and/or conduct classes once a week. Two people or a whole family stay overnight with the guests and help waken and feed them in the morning. Saturday and Sunday volunteers are also needed to spend time with the families or perhaps chaperone an outing. Additional volunteers are needed to assist the Family Promise Director: dentists, physicians and other health care providers.

Time commitment
Ranges from 2-10 hours depending on what you sign up for. Sign up board will be in the church narthex one month before the host week.
