Refugio de emergencia

Nuestro programa de alojamiento rotativo y nuestra cálida hospitalidad son la base del modelo Family Promise.

For the last 14 years, Family Promise ran a rotational shelter program where families would move week to week between 12 different host church locations and with 9 partner church congregations volunteers provided shelter, meals, and support for one week a quarter. During the pandemic, we changed our shelter model to static sites and have three shelter locations where families that join our program stay for the entirety of their stay, each family has their own room and share community space (kitchen, restroom, etc.) with families. Volunteers from all our partnering churches and synagogues now deliver groceries and meals right to the shelter sites for families to enjoy. With the move to static shelter sites, we have been able to expand our shelter program and are now serving up to 18 families at a time.

Story House: Our story house location used to be home to staff offices and the family day center. When the pandemic hit, we moved our offices out and transformed the rooms into a place for guests to sleep. This location can host up to 3 families at a time

Roxy's House: St. James Episcipal church generously has offered for us to use their rectory building as a place to shelter families. This location has larger rooms that we are able to host guests in that have more family members. This location can host up to 3 families at a time.

CÓMO FUNCIONA

Family Promise of Gallatin Valley trabaja con 12 congregaciones anfitrionas y 9 iglesias asociadas que brindan refugio, comidas y apoyo durante una semana por trimestre. Un día típico en el programa de refugio no es una rutina fácil. Un día normal comienza a las 6:00 am, ya que las familias necesitan despertar a sus hijos, vestirse y salir de la iglesia a las 7:30 am para ir al trabajo, la escuela o regresar a nuestro Centro de Día. Aquí, en el Centro de Día, los padres reciben servicios de administración de casos, los niños pueden tomar el autobús escolar y las familias pueden tener un poco de normalidad. A las 3:30 p. M., Los niños han regresado de la escuela y las familias se están preparando para regresar a la iglesia anfitriona para cenar a las 5:30 p. M.

 

Con voluntarios dando su tiempo, preparando comidas y compartiendo la hospitalidad, la falta de vivienda familiar se aborda sin la creación de refugios costosos. Estos voluntarios son el núcleo del programa. Comparten comida, pasan la noche, juegan con los niños y prestan su pasión y experiencia para ayudar a las familias a recuperarse. Demuestran que las personas motivadas pueden solucionar el desamparo familiar. Y, en el proceso, realmente crean un "hogar" - y una comunidad - para las familias que no tienen a dónde ir.

Stepping Stones: In April, 2021, we got the opportunity to rent the third floor of HRDC's Wheat Suites hotel. This gave us 12 more spaces to host families for an extended stay option of our program. Guests staying in the Stepping Stones program have a hotel room to share with their family with their own restroom and a shared community room where there are cooking utilities.
