Family Promise

Family Promise of Western Waukesha County is a collaborative congregational and community effort linking existing resources together to provide cost effective shelter, meals and support services to local homeless children and their families, assisting them to achieve and sustain independence.

Interested in serving the homeless in our Waukesha County community? Family Promise needs you! Members of our parish assist the ministry for a week at a time roughly six times per year. 

Watch for future opportunities

Please sign up with others from St. Anthony to help serve homeless Waukesha county families this week at Gesthemane Church in Pewaukee. We partner with our neighboring parish to provide meals and fellowship to families who find themselves in an immediate  temporary homeless situation. Shifts are as short as 90 minutes. You may volunteer with your family. Shifts are mainly in the evenings and a few on the weekend day. 

Overnight sleepers are needed too: a very easy job!  Sleepers will have their own room and may leave when the guests leave in the van by 7:00am. 

If you have any questions about Family Promise, or to become involved with this hands on ministry, please contact Terri Mahoney-Ogden at terrimahoneyogden@gmail.com
