Volunteers Welcome! REVISION TO WEBSITE DURING COVID-19 (JULY 23, 2020)

Family Promise of Beaufort County

Located in Old Town Bluffton, Family Promise shelters homeless families with children while equipping them with the skills and resources needed for lasting independence.  While our program is non-denominational, under normal circumstances our families sleep in a network of local host congregations where volunteers provide meals, essential needs, and companionship.  Our staff provides comprehensive case management and assistance in securing employment, childcare, school placement and ultimately affordable housing.

During these unprecedented times, we have had to adapt the lodging portion of our Shelter Program until our partner congregations reopen.  For the foreseeable future our families will be staying at a local extended-stay hotel where they have a fully equipped kitchenette and access to complimentary laundry facilities and a business center.   As a result, we find ourselves in an unprecedented situation of not recruiting new volunteers until the situation with COVID-19 subsides.   While we wait for normality to be restored, if you would like to be considered for future volunteer opportunities, please complete our Volunteer Application and look at the sensitivity training video below. Please return the application by either emailing it to officemanagerfamilypromise@gmail.com, or by mail to 181 Bluffton Rd., D101, Bluffton, SC 29910.

Thank you for your interest in sharing your time and talents with Family Promise, and we look forward to having you aboard in the future.

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact us.

Be safe and well.

The Family Promise Team
