Family Promise of Lubbock has over 400 amazing volunteers helping 365 days a year to support families with children facing a housing crisis!
Volunteers of any age are always welcomed and appreciated at Family Promise! We have many ways for individuals, groups, families, congregations and businesses to become involved!
Exciting ways you can get involved!
Provide an Evening Meal & Host our Families: Volunteers prepare and serve a meal for no more than 14 individuals. Meals can be home cooked or fast food. This is an excellent project for a family, group or business!
Overnight Volunteers: Exercise your talent of sleeping and stay overnight with our families from 8:30pm-7am.
Weekend Volunteers: We work in shifts! Come spend a few hours on a Saturday morning or Saturday afternoon.
Furniture Donation Driver: Help us pick-up donated furniture items and bring these items to families as they move into their new homes!
Play with Kids: We typically have infants and toddlers in the program that would love to be held or played with any day during the week!
Projects: Diaper Drives, Supply Drives, secure donations of clothing, gift cards from Walmart, Target, United Supermarkets to be used by our families for food, gas, and other basic essentials; landscaping to beautify our yards; prepare birthday boxes; We Care Kits filled with shampoo, conditioner, deodorants, toothpaste, toothbrushes, etc.
Fundraising Events: Do you have a fundraising idea to benefit the families at Family Promise? We want to know! (% of Sales, Matching Gifts, Bake Sales, Car Washes, Car Shows, Walks, Runs, Box Car City Event)
Mentoring: We know that all families face challenges, and for families who have experienced homelessness, it can be crucial to continue getting the support that helped them while in the program. The tremendous support families receive while they are in the program is why Family Promise is so successful. Continuing those relationships after they graduate is important for families’ long-term sustainable independence. Family Mentoring is one way to accomplish that.
Get your Church Involved: Join our network of churches. Members will assist with meal preparations, overnight stays, cleanup, and weekend work, planning fun activities, projects, transportation and much more! Volunteers are needed in the office for administrative work, special projects, sorting and storage of donations, fundraising and solicitation of daily necessities such as detergent and disposable diapers as well as collections of household items used to help families to set up housekeeping when they move out.
Volunteers find many ways of supporting families in their efforts to become independant; however, their most important service is most often "just being there" to lend a compassionate ear and help the families through one of the most difficult times of their lives - homelessness.
