Family Promise of North Fulton/DeKalb is a nonprofit network of interfaith organizations working together to end homelessness, one family at a time. We provide temporary assistance, hospitality, and case management for families with children experiencing homelessness.
We recognize that poverty is a multifaceted problem that requires a multifaceted response. Our interfaith, nonsectarian network brings the faith community together to help our community’s families regain housing, independence, and dignity in a time of need.
The Mount Vernon B’Nai Torah partnership houses up to four families for four weeks every year, who would otherwise be homeless. This is a hands-on service project and there are volunteer opportunities available for people of all ages. Many families or groups choose to host dinners together, some families or groups of friends come to help get the accommodations prepared. Individuals who are unable to give their time to give foodstuffs or gift certificates. Each session needs volunteers for many volunteer positions. Dinner hosts, evening hosts, and overnight hosts. We also ask for volunteers to provide meals for our guests as well as stock our pantry for the session.
Our next session will be Christmas week when we hope things will be back to normal!
