Family Promise of Berks County helps families in a housing crisis by providing a ‘shelter house’ and intense case worker support for up to 90 days. Families are able to maintain some normalcy, learn homeownership skills, and save money until they found more permanent housing. They now operate three shelter homes.
Our congregation is one of eighteen around Berks County that provides meals or groceries to the families during our two host weeks from Nov. 5 -18.
We need volunteers to drop off a meal or groceries on Mondays directly at the selected house at 6:00pm.
You can also mail gift cards for food and/or supplies directly to the Family Promise Office (325 N. Fifth Street, Reading, PA 19601) on Mon-Thur before 4:30PM. Call (610) 373-3323 to make sure someone is available.
If you have any questions, please call Carla at 610-301-4522.
