Every day, Family Promise IHN connects people who want to help with opportunities to make a difference. Our volunteers give of their time and talent in so many ways to help homeless and low-income families regain the dignity and independence they deserve. You don't need to donate thousands of dollars or hundreds of hours of service to make a A Family Promise Volunteer difference. In fact, one hour of volunteering can work wonders. Basic kindness can change bad days to good ones. It can even transform lives.

Family Promise offers many meaningful opportunities for volunteers. Prepare a meal. Read a story to a toddler. Help write a resume. Donate furniture, clothes, supplies. What can YOU offer?

If you would like to volunteer, please email Volunteers@familypromiselorainco.org.
