HELPING TRANSFORM LIVES BY HELPING FAMILIES

WORK THEIR WAY OUT OF HOMELESSNESS

Family Promise of Blount County is a network of churches working together to provide a home for homeless families throughout the year.  During a host week, participants in the program spend their nights at the church where volunteers work to make them feel welcome.  

Volunteers need to attend a one time 90 minute training session.    


Family Promise of Blount County is a multi-layered program aimed at helping homeless families get back on their feet.
