Through our benevolence fund, we support various community service agencies. In addition, we are actively involved in the following outreach programs:
Family Promise Chicago North Shore
The main focus of the Family Promise program is to help guest families get back into permanent and sustainable housing and employment as quickly as possible. When parents are helped to meet their basic needs and the opportunity to create a plan to get back on their feet, they can begin to realize their dreams of providing a better life for their children. This improves the lives of future generations and also changes our community for the better.
With the help of generous donors, volunteers, and community partners, guests are provided with the services and support they need to transition out of homelessness and back into a position of self-sufficiency.
The Family Promise main office, day center, shower and laundry facilities are located in the First Congregational Church House at 1445 Hinman Avenue. For more information, click here: http://www.fpcnorthshore.org/
