Family Promise

Welcoming families experiencing homelessness to Atonement as their home for a week.








Too many families experience homelessness.  We have a great resource in Berks County called Family Promise of Berks County which helps families experiencing homelessness for the first time with a place to stay, vocational and interview skills training, job hunting, and much more.  Family Promise partners with congregations to serve as host sites - which requires a lot of volunteer opportunities for meaningful interaction and care.  Please consider using your skills, time, and energy in serving these families.  

Some of the many jobs:  

  • Room setup
  • Grocery shopping
  • Overnight Host
  • Dinner and evening host
  • Laundry 

Find out more by watching this 15 minute volunteer training video from Family Promise National. and/or sign up for in person training at West Lawn United Methodist Church on Saturday, June 16, 2018 9-10:45 am
