We will be working with Family Promise of Genesee County as a support congregation to Holly Calvary United Methodist Church. Family Promise of Genesee County helps families who are homeless or at risk of becoming homeless get back on their feet and provide a stable lifestyle for their children. The main goal of Family Promise is to get families back into permanent and sustainable housing and employment as quickly as possible. Family Promise utilizes community resources to keep families together and provide job search resources.

Our next week of support is June 5-11, 2016.  This is an outreach opportunity for people of all ages!  You can help by volunteering to help with dinner or by donating much needed items.
