Family Promise of Western New York has a mission to unite religious and other organizations in responding to the needs of homeless families in our community. Its Emergency Shelter Program provides temporary shelter, meals and support. A rotating group of local churches host one or two families for a week four times a year.
St. Stephens-Bethlehem United Church of Christ is a new host church and is eager for some assistance. They are looking for prepared meals, food for packing lunches and help making breakfast. Volunteers are also needed to staff the site for any of the hours from 5pm to 7am and weekends. If you are interested in more information about this project or can help in any way, call Kris Kasbohm, site coordinator, at 716-250-8173.
