The crisis of homelessness has many faces. The mission of Family Promise is to provide compassion, care, and hope for newly homeless families by allowing them to stay intact, enabling children to stay in their own schools, and providing resources for parents to look for work and housing. Their 27-year record of successfully helping families across the U.S. avoid a cycle of poverty speaks for itself. More information is available at http://www.familypromiseorangecounty.org/
Congregation B’nai Israel is privileged to be among the first houses of worship to support Family Promise of Orange County. We will be partnering with Tustin Presbyterian in each 13-week rotation. Volunteers will be able to help in a variety of ways:
- Prepare meals
- Dine and socialize with guests
- Tutor and play with children
- Stay overnight
