Family Promise of Wake County (WIHN)

Family Promise of Wake County (formerly Wake Interfaith Hospitality Network) is a collection of churches dedicated to assisting those families suffering the pain of homelessness by offering them a place to live one week at a time. GFBC has a long history of supporting this ministry and has grown from hosting just one week a year to hosting three weeks a year in recent years. Our guests stay with us from early evening until early morning. We provide them with dinner, a place to hang out and watch TV, do homework and crafts, or play games, doing our best to make them feel at home. If unemployed, guests receive assistance from the Family Promise office in applying for jobs, childcare during interviews and other necessary assistance. At GFBC, we work with Family Promise to assist these families with dignity, respect and the love that Jesus showed in his interactions with all he encountered. Family Promise weeks could not be accomplished without the many hands of volunteers of all ages. Contact GFBC for more information at wesley.spears-newsome@gfbccary.org
