Family Promise of Sacramento is a nonprofit program designed specifically for homeless families that helps them achieve self-sufficiency and regain a home for themselves and their children. Shelter for the families is provided through a unique, innovative method by utilizing an interfaith hospitality network of 16 churches and hundreds of volunteers throughout the Sacramento region.
First United Methodist Church is a host church and houses Family Promise guests 4 times each year.
When families are in residence at FUMC, we offer multiple opportunities to volunteers to cook meals, spend time with the children with special activities, spend the night with the families and plan special outings for our guests.
If you are interested in volunteering during a week with Family Promise, please contact the church office.
Since the war in Syrian began in 2011 there have been millions of people displaced. Sacramento has become home for some of these families. There will be a lunch presentation about the challenges they face and how we as a community can help.
