Families Moving Forward

November 12, 2017 - November 19, 2017

Ending homelessness one family at a time

Sign-up to volunteer the week of November 12 -19

Volunteers are needed to help provide for guests in our building: set-up, clean-up, greet on Sunday, cook an evening meal, cook a hot breakfast on Saturday, provide evening hospitality, host overnight and do laundry. 

We will be hosting families:

Volunteer with Families Moving ForwardFamilies Moving Forward (FMF) is a program of Beacon Interfaith Housing Collaborative.  FMF provides services to families during the day and a network of Twin Cities churches hosts the families in their buildings at night. 

The families are tightly screened before they are accepted into the program and only 14 people are accepted at a time. Each evening they are transported by FMF to the church.  We provide an evening meal, hospitality, a “bedroom” for each family, and breakfast each day during the week.  Families are bused by FMF back to the day shelter each morning where they are able to shower and work with FMF staff to get the pieces of their lives back in order. 

Families Moving Forward is aligned with Immanuel’s vision: Called to care. Sent to serve.
