Support Congregations do not host guest families. They do, however, offer their help through volunteers that assist the hosting congregations with such things as meals, playing and tutoring children, interacting with parents and giving in-kind donations (food, toiletries, clothing, school supplies, etc.), and through staffing our Family Day Center.
Serving as a Support Congregation also creates the opportunity for the members of the congregation to help live out their faith’s tradition of helping those in need and positively impact Chattanooga’s community. We’re so fortunate to have these generous people volunteer their time and talents at the congregations, our Family Day Center as well as with our special projects and events.
The Family Promise of Greater Chattanooga staff is always in close contact with our congregations throughout the process, and is on call 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
Currently we have 15 Support Congregations, but we are always looking for more. The need never leaves. If you or your congregation would like to join us as either a host or a support congregation, please contact us at (423) 756-3891.
