Description: 90-Day Shelter
How It Works
Every Sunday, the FPV van transports the cots and the families’ personal belongings to their new host congregation. The families can ride in the van or, if they have their own cars, they can drive to the host congregation where they will be staying.Guest families arrive at the Host Congregation on Sunday evening and setup their temporary overnight room.
Families settle in and get to meet the coordinators and the evening volunteers.Dinner begins at 6:00 PM.Families and volunteers share the meal together. Parents are responsible for their children and help with the chores.After dinner, volunteers fellowship with families.Hosts and the families complete homework assignments, play games, watch videos, and socialize.Food is available in the kitchen area for parents to pack themselves and their children lunch for the following day.Two Volunteers will spend the night at the congregation. Adults turn in around 10:00 PM; children at appropriate bedtimes. Wake up is around 6:00 AM the following morning.Breakfast is provided at 6:30 AM during the week (typically cereal and other convenient foods).The FP van picks the families up at 7:00 AM.
During the day families are not at the congregation.
On Saturdays the families can sleep in at the congregation and enjoy a hot breakfast (pancakes, bacon, and eggs).After breakfast, the families go back to the Day Center and do what families typically do on weekends—see friends and relatives, take children to activities, etc.Sunday Routine
