Family Promise - North Shore Boston

Family Promise North Shore Boston aims to return newly homeless families to economic self-sufficiency, while serving each family that experiences homelessness in  a manner that embraces the dignity and strength of the family.  To avoid the costly and time-consuming process of creating shelters, they use existing resources in an interfaith network of local congregations. Families receive meals and overnight lodging at houses of worship, which take turns sheltering families one week at a time. During the day, guests have access and transportation to their Day Center, where professional social workers help them attain employment, sustainable housing and other services as needed. Our parish's Justice for Jesus social justice ministry partners with Family Promise. To find out more about our parish's involvement or to volunteer, contact Linda Beaver.
