Hosanna Lutheran hosts and supports families without homes through volunteer help from our congregation


The Family Promise Network Program brings shelter, meals, and support services to families without homes. The networks are a cost-efficient, effective, and replicable community response to family homelessness.

Each Host Congregation provides private or semi-private space for each family. The Host Congregation is responsible for picking up the utility trailer with the cots (that Family Promise provides) from the previous host church and transporting the cots to their church. Volunteers will then unload the cots and make the beds (the congregations provide the linens and pillows) in preparation to receive our families. The Support Congregations provide much needed volunteers, supplies and finances when needed.

Volunteers are essential to the program’s success and provide a wide range of services like cooking and serving meals, playing with children or helping them with homework, interacting with guests with respect and compassion, and providing overnight security.
