Family Promise Ministry
Family Promise, of Gwinnett, is an Interfaith, non-profit, Community organization for Gwinnett families in transition. It is part of a national organization founded in 1986. It brings shelter, meals, and support services to families without homes through a network of local congregations. familypromisegwinnett.org
Congregations either “Host”(provide sleeping arrangements and meals) for the families for one week at their Church/Synagogue, or are a “Support Church,” providing additional needed volunteers. There are currently 30 “Host” congregations and 15 “Support” congregations providing space and volunteers. Congregations assist by providing regular volunteers and funds.
St. Stephen the Martyr Parish and St. John Neumann Parish have joined forces to serve together in a Collaborative Ministry between parishes to jointly serve Family Promise of Gwinnett.
St. Stephen the Martyr is a “Support Church” in collaboration with St. John Neumann Catholic Church (nearby in Lilburn, GA). This collaborative ministry is looking for volunteers to serve the ministry by purchasing, preparing and presenting meals along with socializing with the “guests.” Additional volunteers are needed to stay overnight as contact persons.
Ministry volunteers support Family Promise “Host” Churches, including St. John Neumann in Lilburn. Usually there are 2-3 volunteer weeks each year with the opportunity to serve with St. John Neumann or other local churches. Other opportunities are available through Family Promise of Gwinnett.
This program can only operate with volunteers like yourself, willing to provide this outreach to families and children in need. HOW CAN YOU HELP? Donations of Time, Talent and Treasure are means of helping. Volunteers are also invited to attend the core team meetings held throughout the year.
