About Our Chapter

Our Volunteers 

 All of our volunteers are properly evaluated and approved through background checks, home assessments, references, and training.  These volunteers are committed to their local Church and desire to do their part by living on mission and showing Biblical hospitality by being connected to struggling families in their communities.  We would not be able to do this work without them!! 

Our Churches

The local churches play a vital role in recruiting volunteers as they promote the advocacy for at-risk families by emphasizing the biblical scriptural requirement for loving our neighbors (Matthew 22:39).  They as well support their congregations to serve others in their crisis situations. Each church has differing congregation sizes and they vary from denominational to non-denominational backgrounds.
