One Congregation, One Family

One Congregation, One Family

Are you interested in working with a team of First Church members to mentor a family transitioning from homelessness to self-sufficiency? If yes, you might be perfect for the One Church One Family mentor team. Volunteers will work with families to help them achieve specified goals. All families will be preparing to move from the District’s Rapid Re-housing program — which provides rental and utility assistance as well as supportive services for a specified short period of time — to market-rate housing. Changes to the program since the last round include regular meetings of the mentor team, the family and the OCOF project coordinator, and close collaboration with the family’s case manager. Interested individuals must attend a mandatory training in late April. For more information, contact Mary Alice Ball at maryaliceball.phd@gmail.com.
