Family Promise has many amazing volunteers helping 365 days a year to support families with children facing a housing crisis! Volunteers of  any age are always welcomed and appreciated at Family Promise! Family Promise helped over 25 families a year, and it would not be possible  without each and every one of our valuable volunteers.

We have many ways for individuals, groups, families, congregations and businesses to become involved – age, skill and availability don’t matter – we will find the perfect fit!

Exciting ways you can get involved!

Make a Meal: Help cook breakfast or dinner with one of our Host congregations! As an individual or a group serve our families a hot meal and share your compassion through your food.

Overnight Volunteers: Exercise your talent of sleeping and stay overnight with our families from 8:30 pm-7 am.

Kids Care Program: Do you have a school, youth group, girl/boy scout troop, or sports team that wants to help homeless kids? A staff member at Family Promise would love to talk to your class, team, or group about the realities of child and family homelessness and provide a service activity for kids to make a difference!

Play with Kids: We typically have infants and toddlers in the program that would love to be held or played with any day during the week!

These are just a few of the many tasks that our volunteers assist with as we work to help families facing a housing crisis in Ozaukee County. Individual volunteers as well as group volunteers can get involved on a one-time, monthly, weekly, or even daily basis!

Some of the many groups who have volunteered in the past include:

  • Youth groups
  • Families
  • Church groups
  • Organizational groups
