Family Promise of Greater Des Moines (FPGD) assists families experiencing homelessness through a network of 14 area faith-based host congregations that provide clean, safe overnight shelter and nutritious meals for a period of one week every season. The host congregations provide each family with a private room for sleeping as well as dinner and food for breakfast and for packing a lunch.
Each time our church hosts, about 100 volunteer job slots are filled to assist with meals, kitchen clean-up, driving, and serving as evening and overnight hosts. Check out the available slots here!
