Family Promise


Family Promise North Shore Boston aims to return newly homeless families to economic self-sufficiency, while serving each family that experiences homelessness in a manner that embraces the dignity and strength of the family.

Volunteers from local church congregations provide hospitality to guest families. Congregation volunteer activities include:

  • Cooking and hosting dinner
  • Spending the evening with families, visiting, helping with homework or playing with the children
  • Planning special activities
  • Sleeping overnight at the host congregation
  • Donating needed supplies for the host congregation
  • Setting up and taking down the guest families’ rooms.

Committed volunteers are needed to help at the Day Center, particularly on the weekends. Office Angel volunteer shifts are only two hours long and may include activities such as:

  • Staffing our headquarters on the weekends
  • Playing games or reading to the children
  • Engaging in weekend activities with families
  • Helping to prepare for new families to enter the program
  • Performing data entry
  • Tutoring children or helping with homework
  • Advocating for jobs and housing for families experiencing homelessness.
