Family Promise

2021 Host Weeks: August 15-22 & December 5-12

St. Jane Family Promise participates as a host congregation through Family Promise of St. Tammany, which furnishes lodgings here at St. Jane in Abita Springs and provides nutritious meals for homeless families (up to 14 people) for one week a few 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 a hot meal, arrange activities for children, serve a meal, 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.

We are excited to be hosting families once again at St. Jane de Chantal during the weeks of August 15th and December 5th. Check back for our sign up for supplies, meals, and to volunteer time. Mark your calendars to sign up in person at Coffee and Donuts in St. Jane Hall on August 1st and November 7th.
