Family Promise of Seattle, a West Seattle-based organization created to help homeless families with children, says it’s almost ready to open — but first, it needs a few more congregations that can help those families, and they don’t even have to be in WS:

We are still seeking 3 or 4 congregations to serve as hosts, and commit prior to opening our operation. Hosting is very important to adequately serve families in need and to spread the volunteer committment so that each congregation is providing night-time hosting about once per quarter.

Being a host congregation includes:

*Providing an overnight spot for families in our program (no more than 14 total persons at any time)

*Agreeing to serve as host for one week per quarter, approximately

*Providing an evening meal, breakfast and items for families to make lunches with to take to the Day Center, school, work, etc.

*Lining up volunteers to greet families, play with children, essentially welcome them to your space

Please contact Marcia Olson, Board Chair, immediately if your congregation, anywhere in greater Seattle is willing to serve this urgent need. Please e-mail

You can find out more about Family Promise, and those who have already agreed to help, by checking its website.
