All Saints partners with Family Promise of Albuquerque to provide shelter for up to four families at a time. We convert classrooms into bedrooms for one week at a time, up to 4 times per year. Family Promise provides the beds and we provide the volunteers!
Volunteers provide homemade meals and sit down with the guests for family-style dinners. They help children with homework and also tutor parents when needed. They provide activities in the evenings and on weekends and they stay overnight to ensure safety. In the mornings, they drop all of the children at school and bring parents who do not have jobs to the day center where the parents spend every weekday morning with tutors, attending skill-building classes and applying for jobs. Case management also is provided to help families connect with resources.
Our next hosting is September 17-24. Sign up in the Narthex to help.
