As part of the Family Promise inter-faith network, UUSMC continues its partnership with St. Mark’s United Methodist Church as a support congregation to help homeless children and families in the area. Families receive shelter, meals, and support services to help them transition to stable, permanent housing and employment.

St. Mark’s Church will be hosting the families during the week of Oct. 11-17. Typically, families arrive at the Host congregation Sunday evening where they will stay for the week, leave every morning so the children can go to school and parents to their jobs or to seek employment. Volunteers from our congregation can assist with meals, transportation, activities during the evenings, or as overnight hosts at the church. All those interested can email Ivonne {dot} antongiorgi {at} gmail {dot} com for more details.
