Family Promise Host Week

Family Promise of Southern Chester County alleviates homelessness one family at a time. For one week each quarter, right here on Willowdale’s Kennett Campus, we have a chance to provide hospitality and shelter to families experiencing homelessness. The next Family Promise Host Week is Oct. 29-Nov. 5.

Family Promise has achieved great success in placing families in safe housing after their time in our program. More than 75 percent of them have been successfully housed since our inception almost two years ago. This is far above the national average for a traditional homeless shelter. The model works—both nationally and here in Southern Chester County—but it needs dedicated volunteers to maintain its success. We need people to have dinner with families and help set up and tear down—or you can spend the night in our church on a comfortable air mattress. It’s a meaningful way to live out loving our neighbors right here in our church home.

Volunteers must submit the necessary clearances before signing up. Please email them to and If you haven’t filled out a volunteer application and affidavit, please do so. Scan or snap a photo and email it to
