BEACON-Families Moving Forward

Beacon Interfaith Housing Collaborative is a partnership of over 80 congregations who seek to end homelessness in our area through the Families Moving Forward shelter program, the creation of stable housing sites and through public advocacy.

Twice a year, for 7 days, we open our church home for four families for a total of up to 18 people in the Families Moving Forward program, enabling them to “feel at home” at Good Samaritan.

Volunteer Opportunities:

  • Fund and prepare dinner
  • Evening play host for the children
  • Overnight hosts which includes setting out breakfast
  • Set-up crew to prepare the church for the families
  • Take Down crew after the families leave

The next opportunity for Good Samaritan is August 17-25, 2019. We will be cohosting this session with St. Stephens Church; however, some volunteers are needed.  November 16-24, 2019 we are also hosting families. Volunteers are needed. You can sign up online to volunteer at approximately 6 weeks prior to the hosting dates.
