Family Promise of Ontario County

Thank you for your continued support of the Family Promise Program during our host weeks. For 2024 our host weeks are in March and September.


Several congregations and local businesses purchased and wrapped over 500 Christmas gifts for 20 families with 61 children. Our congregation provided gifts for a one-year-old girl and her Mom.


Gas cards are most useful now, as Family Promise has a grant to pay for family groceries.


We can engage face to face with our guests, as COVID subsides in our area. Want to help? Could you...:

     « Reset an apartment, help manage donations, grocery shop for our families or help in the office?

     « Donate gift cards for our families to buy groceries?

     « Inventory and deliver books as part of our partnership with the Budding Readers program?

     « Inventory, organize, and deliver donated toys at the Day Center?

     « Pray, pray, pray for FPOC families, employees and volunteers:

  • Permanent housing for all of our guests

  • A childcare solution for a mom whose work hours are being changed

  • Peace and stability for a mom experiencing mental health concerns

  • Strength and love for a first time mother with a one-month-old baby

  • An easy birth for a mom in labor!


So many ways to help!
