Family Promise 2020

Family Promise


FUMC hosts Family Promise February 23 – March 1, 2020

In partnership with Family Promise and other local churches, we provide temporary shelter for families experiencing homelessness once a year.   Families rotate between churches each week where they are provided safe shelter, hot meals, and fellowship.  Family Promise is the only organization in Gaston County whose efforts allow family units to be together during this transitional time in their lives as they seek permanent housing.  The mission of the national Family Promise organization is to help families experiencing homelessness and low-income families achieve sustainable independence through a community based response.  Click here to learn more.
