Family Promise

Family Promise is a program that provides food and shelter for homeless families.  These families generally move from congregation to congregation on a weekly basis with virtually the clothes on their back and a small collection of items.  They are part of the program until they can get steady employment and save enough to be able to move to transitional housing.  Temple Beth Tikvah has been gracious to be a host 2-3 times a year for well over a decade.  Our congregants have brought meals, stayed overnight and provided donations to help support this program.

There are (3) ways you can help.

St Luke’s Presbyterian Church has gone above and beyond as being the “permanent” host of the Family Promise families.  While this is the case, this has placed an extreme burden on their congregation.  They are still accepting volunteers as overnight hosts.  If you are interested and available, please contact Andrea Brantley at 404-260-4364.

 If you are not comfortable donating your time, financial donations are always welcome.  Since you are not going out as much as you used to or eating at your favorite restaurant as much as you used to, you may find that you have some extra disposable income.  Consider a financial donation to Family Promise.  You can send your donation directly to: Family Promise of north Fulton/Dekalb, 1978 Mr Vernon Rd, Dunwoody Ga  30338.

 The Family Promise program is also accepting donated items.  Below is a list of needed items provided by Family Promise:
