December 11th, 2020, our chapter had the privilege of volunteering for Family Promise of Grand Rapids! We lent a helping hand at one of the Welcome Home program locations. We were able to get hands on and help paint, hang up blinds, install fire alarms and other tasks. It was truly an honor to volunteer for such a great organization and we can’t wait to do it again!

Family Promise of Grand Rapids provides emergency shelter and basic needs to families with children who are facing a housing crisis. They make sure families have somewhere safe to sleep each night through one of their 3 shelter programs. They then work with families to identify why they lost their home and help them overcome those obstacles. Whether it was a job loss, medical crisis, family break up etc. Once families have found a stable and sustainable housing solution, they walk alongside them in the Welcome Home program to help ensure they never become homeless again.
