About

Congregational Partnership Program Volunteers

Volunteer Supervisor: Raechel Wrona

Description: The Congregational Partnership Program connects congregations with families who have experienced homelessness as they regain housing stability. By walking along-side a family, you are a listening ear and support to a family who may not have other people in their life to count on. Lead volunteers are 2-3 individuals from a congregation who are the primary contact with a family. The lead volunteers meet with families at least once per month for 6 months and coordinate communication between their congregation and family. All others interested in volunteering can help on an as needed basis.

Number of volunteers needed: Unlimited

Schedule: Lead volunteers provide relational support for one family for six months. Estimated 3-5 per month. We also have one time events such as creating welcome baskets for new families that can be arranged and held at a congregation.

Qualifications: Lead volunteers must be at least 18 years old and have gone through the volunteer training. Other volunteers must also go through the training, but can include children if they are volunteering with an adult. Background Check from Congregation also required.
