The OLUMC Go! Ministry has recently formed a partnership with Promise House, a non-profit organization whose sole purpose is to provide support for homeless and runaway youth. Founded in 1984, Promise House has dramatically expanded their programming to include crisis intervention, transitional housing, pregnant and parenting teen services, counseling, education, and outreach to neglected, abused, and at-risk youth ages 0-24 Their services are available 24 hours a day, 365 days a year, to children, teens, and families in crisis, and they serve approximately 1,700 youth and families annually.
How We Support Promise House
Each quarter (4 times a year), OLUMC will help support Promise House through your gifts or service. How will this work? You will have two opportunities to choose from (or do both!)
- Gifts: We will offer members and guests the opportunity to support Promise House by providing much-needed supplies. This could range from new clothing to cleaning or school supplies, snacks, or even contributing to a fundraising drive
- Service: You can help support us by attending an activity sponsored by OLUMC. We may plan a game night for youth, do a field trip, or participate in the annual SleepOut.
Stay tuned for information on how we will support Promise House in 2018!
