Family Promise is an opportunity for you to be a neighbor to families who are temporarily without private housing and do “hands-on” mission work with other WCC members right in our WCC facilities. Four or five times a year, WCC hosts guest families from 5:30 pm Sunday to 7:00 am the following Sunday.
The WCC site Coordinators provide support for WCC volunteers each night. Over 100 WCC members of all ages have volunteered as dinner hosts, evening hosts, overnight hosts, and helped with move in and move out. The Family Promise network makes a big difference helping our guest families get back on their feet and into permanent housing. The volunteer opportunities available are:
• Dinner Hosts
5-7pm – prepare a meal for one to three guest families and the WCC Dinner volunteers (family), eat together family style
• Evening Hosts
7-9pm – help with homework, play games, or plan a craft or activity
• Overnight hosts (2)
9pm -7am – spend the night on rollaway bed, set out quick breakfast in the morning, clean up and be on your way by 7:30AM.
