Family Promise  Host Dates
Want to make a difference in the life of a young child, teen or adult? Feel like you need to give back to a good cause? Well the opportunity is coming up soon: Our new families through the Greater Portland Family Promise program will be arriving for the week August 12-19.
Cape Elizabeth United Methodist will open their doors again to welcome the families. Our volunteer support to ensure these families feel safe and welcomed is very important. It really does take a village to ensure the week here is successful. The feedback from the Greater Portland Family Promise is that the families love their week here in Cape.
Those that have had training can eat with the families, play and intact with them after dinner, or stay overnight to just be there in case you are needed at night for anything. Trained volunteers can also help with the non-trained tasks and needs. Time needed is only 1-2 hrs. You can sign up and do as much as you’d like.
If you would like to become a trained volunteer in this ministry, the next training is Sunday, July 22nd, 1:00-4:00pm, Saint Luke’s Episcopal Cathedral, Portland (parking lot at 134 Park Street)
There remains volunteer opportunities for those that have not had the required training yet. These opportunities include setting up the rooms where the families will sleep and taking down at the the end of the week, making dinner, or doing laundry for the sheets.
Sign up info will be coming soon using Signup.com for our host week August 12-19. It is very easy to logon and sign up. If you have any questions or need help, please contact Debbie Phelan 207-650-1927, Ruth Dodge, or Holly Clark at hclark@stalbansmaine.org.
Again, thank you in advance for your commitment to this ministry!
