Family Promise of Summit County ensures that families stay together during a homeless crisis.  Most other programs seperate the mother, father, and children during thise incredibly diffult time.  Unlike other homeless services Family Promise has a very low (less than 1%) return rate among families they serve.  

Faith Lutheran Church is partnering with Temple Israel in Montrose to provide shelter at Temple Israel.  The host congregation (Temple Israel) provides housing for a week at a time, for up to 16 individuals.  Our role as a Support Congregation is to provide volunteers to provide transportation and dinner to the residences for the week.  The transportation is using a van provided by Family Promise.

Our first week of service in this new ministry is Sunday, November 24-Sunday, December 1, 2019.  If you are able to be a driver, cook, and/or serve meals please contact Rob Kerr, Outreach Ministry Director, at 330-836-8811.
