Family Promise - July

Family Promise In Anoka County is a non-profit committed to finding housing, employment and overall support for homeless families in Anoka County. This is the only organization of its kind in our area. We will be hosting families at UNSC this week and have a variety of volunteer opportunities open.

July 25-August 1, 2021: This week we will provide the basket of miscellaneous items and individual gift cards to the families. Our partner church, Roots & Branches, will be providing a meal for the families in the program at that time.

Volunteers are needed to help shop for the baskets or donate/purchase the gift cards. The basket and cards will need to be at Unity no later than Wednesday, July 28, 2021. The basket of items that the families are looking for may include any of the following: snacks, beverages, activities for the children, cleaning supplies, and personal care items along with a $25 gift card. If you can help, please reach out by email or by calling 763-442-1825 to sign up.

If you are planning to volunteer for Family Promise, you must have filled out a Volunteer Application and have attended a training session. This training session is approximately 1 hour long, depending upon the number in attendance and the questions that may be raised.

If you would like to volunteer and have not attended a training session or would simply enjoy a refresher, please contact Kathleen Bailey at 763-442-1825.
