Family Promise of Birmingham www.familypromise.org
Family Promise of Birmingham is a program that assists families in north-central Alabama who are temporarily homeless. Family Promise of Birmingham is unique in that it shelters entire families; most shelters require families to be split up. These pre-screened families spend their days working, at school, or at Southside Baptist Church, and then spend nights at area congregations. We host homeless families 4 times per year, a week at a time. Hosts are needed from 5:30 PM to 7:00 PM for dinner and spend the night 7PM – 6:30 AM the next morning.
Volunteer Opportunities. Sign up to cook and serve dinner, be an overnight host for one night during the week the families are with us. Set up & break down rooms, launder linens after the families leave. Check www.ssechurch.org for online signups.
