Family Promise of Northern New Castle County is a non-profit, 501(c)3 organization that prevents and ends homelessness for families by engaging faithbased congregations, volunteers, and donors.

Since March of 2015, Hockessin Friends Meeting members and attenders have been volunteering with Family Promise, making meals for families staying at the Westminister Presbyterian Church in Wilmington. Find out more by talking to someone who has volunteered, by visiting the website https://www.familypromisede.org/, and by signing up to help next time!

Also, please plan to attend a presentation by Carolyn Gordon, Executive Director of Family Promise of Northern New Castle County, after potluck at Hockessin Meeting on Sunday, January 21.
