Family Promise

August 16-23, 2020

Our next Host Week is August 16-23.  Due to COVID-19, Family Promise families will be sheltered at the Day Center. Since we won’t be hosting families physically at St. Jane, we would still like to “Host” our week as best and safely as we are able.

They are in need of cleaning supplies, paper towels, toilet paper, and disinfectant supplies. They will also need other supplies & groceries. Please sign up on our Wish List here: https://www.signupgenius.com/go/9040E4FA5AD22A6FB6-family1 We will be collecting supplies in St. Jane parking lot Thursday, August 13th from 8:45 am – 9:45 am. If you are unable to deliver during this time, please bring to the church office prior to August 13th.

The families are not able to take advantage of our love at this time and would appreciate hearing from you. If you would like to send words of encouragement, notes, or cards to the families, mail them directly to the program. These notes will be shared with shelter families and graduates.

Mail directly to the Day Center:

St. Jane Family Promise participates as a host congregation through Family Promise of St. Tammany, which furnishes lodging here at St. Jane in Abita Springs, and provides nutritious meals for homeless families (up to 14 people) for one week up to four times a year. St. Jane is proud and excited to be a part of this opportunity to demonstrate the corporal and spiritual works of mercy in a practical and life-affirming way.

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, stay overnight as a host, help with setup, housekeeping, or breakdown, you can make a difference in the lives of families who have lost their homes and are on the road to regaining independence.
