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 is a “Support Church” with volunteers who purchase, prepare and present meals, and socialize with the “guests.” And, two volunteers stay overnight as contact persons. We currently volunteer to support two “Host” Churches, All Saints Lutheran in Lilburn and St. John Neumann in Lilburn. Each of these Churches “Hosts” for 2 different weeks each year, resulting in 4 weeks of volunteer opportunities. There are also other opportunities to volunteer throughout the year.
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. Please Contact: Joanné or Mark Zoghby at
if you would like to volunteer for this very important outreach ministry or help in any way.
