As mentioned before, Family Promise will soon be opening doors in St. Jane Parish.

Family Promise will provide ways for us to work together to help homeless families. We will provide overnight lodging and meals for three to five families (up to 14 persons) for one week each, two or three times per year.

Volunteers are the heart and soul of Family Promise and there are many ways that you can help. Whether you provide part of a hot meal, arrange activities for children, or stay overnight, you can make a difference in the lives of families who have lost their home and are on the road to regaining independence. St. Jane de Chantal is proud and excited to be a part of this opportunity to live out the corporal and spiritual works of mercy in a practical and life-affirming way.
