Welcoming New Friends

Family Promise succeeds because of the efforts of our volunteers and partners. This week, we honor a new partnership and an old friend.

Our new friend, Parkview Baptist Church

Today, we would like to welcome our newest hosts, Parkview Baptist Church of Morehead City. Last week was their very first week hosting homeless families at their church, and our families met some new friends, and eat some wonderful meals. The volunteers who spent the nights with them in this new place made them feel like extended family, with grace, generosity, and God’s love. We are so glad to welcome them as our newest partners, they truly know how to treat “the least of these”.

We would also like to highlight our volunteer Miriam Green, for her tireless efforts keeping our systems up to date and organized, and for training newcomers to those same systems.  Miriam has dedicated a great deal of her time and expertise to the homeless in our community and we honor her as our Volunteer of the Week.
