Family Promise Hosting

St. John's is pleased to continue participation in Family Promise Hosting. Formerly known as Cumberland Interfaith Hospitality Network, Family Promise Hosting allows families without a place to live to transition into a home.

Together the program provides much more than "shelter." The Host Congregations work on a rotation basis, providing overnight accommodations at their churches or other designated facility. They host the families, overnight, a week at a time, approximately four times per year. They provide a buffet style dinner, breakfast and a packed lunch to go. Volunteers create and organize activities for the children, extend a listening ear to the parents, and very often furnish referrals to employment, direct assistance with household furnishings, basic need items, financial assistance, and the list goes on. -from the CIHN official website
