Family Promise

  • MUMC is part of a network of churches making up the Northern New Castle County Family Promise Network. We support St. James Episcopal Church in its host role.

  • Family Promise provides help to 4 families in the area at a time who are currently without a home to regain their independence. Families are helped with finding work and permanent housing, along with other assistance, and while they are in the program (for about 90 days) they stay in our houses of worship.

  • Volunteers from MUMC host the families for two nights per host week (3-4 weeks each year). Volunteers are needed to cook and serve dinner, visit with the families in the evening, spend the night as chaperones and grocery shop.

  • We serve up to 14 people or 4 families at a time, so it is quite manageable.

  • Come meet the face of homelessness and share the love of Jesus Christ. You will find these families are just like you and I but are currently faced with situations that caused them to lose their home.
