WAYS TO GET INVOLVED

Every day, we connect people who want to help with opportunities to make a difference. Our volunteers give their time, talent and treasure in so many ways to help families and individuals in our community become self-sufficient once again. 

You don’t need to donate thousands of dollars or hundreds of hours of service to make a real difference. In fact, a few hours of volunteering can work wonders! Basic kindness can change bad days to good ones and can even transform lives.

Family Promise offers many meaningful opportunities for volunteers. Here are some ways you can help us. We hope you’ll join our network of caring friends!

Spread the word:

  • Invite a speaker from Family Promise of Morris County to your community group or congregation to learn more about our programs and the crisis of homelessness

  • Talk to your fellow community group members or congregants about opportunities for service

  • Talk to your clergy about joining our network of Morris County congregations as a partner congregation
     

Volunteer:

  • Get involved at your church or synagogue when they’re supporting families in our programs

  • Hold a donation drive for our wish list items

  • Hold a fundraising event to benefit Family Promise of Morris County

  • Help us plan a special event for families or individuals in our programs (e.g., birthday parties, movie time)

  • Help prepare motel rooms with welcoming touches for families in our Shelter Program

  • Support our Making Moves Matter More team in preparing guests' new homes for move-in day

  • Serve a meal at Our Promise Drop-In Resource Center

  • Provide financial literacy training, resume help, or interview preparation for guests in our programs

  • Complete a Done-In-A-Day service project (e.g., gardening, organizing donations)

“Each time we make room for strangers, we chip away at the fear and isolation and heartbreak in our world. We also get to participate in something that is life giving, both to us and the people we welcome.”
