WHAT DO HOST CONGREGATIONS DO?
About four to six times a year -- for one week at a time -- host congregations provide...
Hosting rotates among the host congregations, which provide lodging for 1-4 families (up to 14 individuals) from 5 p.m. until 7 a.m. the next morning.
Hosting also involves two church people staying overnight with the guest families (each family in its own room).
The host congregation provides bedding for the guests (beds provided by Family Promise) and beds and linens for the overnight hosts.
Host congregations sign a commitment with Family Promise outlining their program participation.
