Training session July 26
Our church’s first week to host families in the Greater Portland Family Promise mission will be Aug. 13-20.
We will need many volunteers throughout the week for approximately 90-minute shifts, but before anyone can volunteer, they must go through a training program that will fully explain how we will work with the families in a way that is consistent with how other faith communities are working with homeless families with children.
The training program for our church will be Wednesday, July 26 from 5:30-8:30 p.m. at the church. Please plan to attend. Even if you will not be volunteering for the Aug. 13-20 week, you will need the training to make yourself available for future weeks.
We will host Family Promise families four times a year and in addition to volunteers from our church, there will be volunteers from St. Bartholomew’s and St. Alban’s for each of the host weeks.
If you have not received an e-mail about how you can help during the Aug. 13-20 week, please contact Deanne Burr at (207) 956-8854.
