Family Promise (formerly WIHN)
Family Promise of Wake County‘s mission is to provide shelter, meals, case management and educational services to homeless families in addition to promoting action and awareness in the community regarding homelessness.
The Kirk serves as a host congregation for guests 3 or 4 weeks each year, one week at a time. A host congregation is responsible for the overall evening housing of the guests each week, including preparing and feeding dinner and breakfast each day, preparing bag lunches, setting up and breaking down sleeping quarters, daily pick up and return of guests to and from the WIHN offices in Raleigh, and providing all the food, laundry supplies, etc. to make our guests comfortable during their stay.
For more information or to volunteer, contact Diane Luparello, Kirk Program Coordinator at firstname.lastname@example.org.
2017 WIHN dates: January 8-15, 2017. More dates TBD.
