Nineteen churches decided to pool their resources and host homeless families in need. They take turns hosting the families at each church and rotate every week, providing food, childcare, counseling services and transportation, to help the family get back on their feet.
There is an upcoming training/refresher on March 13th from 6 pm to 8 pm.
The location is at Aldersgate in Slidell.
This will act as a training for new volunteers as well as a refresher for current volunteers.
Apart from the Family Promise material, we will have Sheri Eastridge from Safe Harbor who will be speaking to the group about Domestic Violence. Data shows many homeless families have experienced Domestic Violence. Sheri is a wealth of information and has requested to enlighten us on the issues and to help better prepare the volunteers to deal with some of the aftermath that our families experience after such a traumatic event.
