FAMILY PROMISE at St. Elisabeth’s
Our congregation is excited to be part of the nationally acclaimed Family Promise program in the Chicago North area. The concept of being able to host fellow North Shore families who find themselves in emergency homeless situations for a week while they make new housing arrangements has attracted our people because it gives us a chance to practice the heart of what our Christian faith is about: loving our neighbors in the name of God. Because of code restrictions we are not able to host families overnight in our facility. We have partnered with other congregations so that we can move forward with this mission. Our first two hosts weeks in 2012 with Am Shalom Congregation in Glencoe, and St. John’s Evangelical Lutheran Church in Wilmette. They were a great success due to our many volunteers. Currently we are partnering with St. Augustine’s, Wilmette.
