Family Promise

As a 'host' congregation for Family Promise, Mount Vernon First United Methodist Church houses and feeds homeless families with school-aged children for one week, four times a year. While participating in the program, which is supported by several churches in the Skagit Valley, the parents save enough money to enter into permanent and stable housing. Each week hosting the families requires about forty volunteers. If you would like more information about the program, or would like to volunteer during our host weeks, please contact Carolyn Gregg through the church office.
