Foothills Church partners with Family Promise of Blount County to help end child and family homelessness in Blount County.
"Carry each other’s burdens, and in this way you will fulfill the law of Christ."
Family Promise Mission is to help homeless and low-income families achieve sustainable independence. One facet of this mission is to provide temporary housing while residents go through empowering life skills training.
Local churches in the area volunteer to provide temporary housing in their church building for one week. At the end of each week the residents move on to another church facility. Churches who cannot provide housing can partner with those who do. Foothills Church will partner with Everett Hills Baptist Church who will host the families in their facilities. Everett Hills will host four times a year, basically once a quarter. FC will come along side and support with food, fellowship, overnight stays at Everett Hills, set-up and tear down. FC volunteers can serve and build relationships in a variety of ways as we show love and compassion to these families.
To serve in this ministry volunteers must go through a training.
