Family Promise of Great Falls started hosting guests in January 2015. Guests stay for a week in each church. Moving beds from church to church usually involves a trailer. However, hosting churches may be just across the street as in this example.
About 30 volunteers moved the beds across 2nd avenue North from First United Methodist to First Baptist Sunday afternoon. Volunteers were from both those churches as well as the LDS 4th Ward. They had it done in less than 15 minutes! Thank you to all volunteers who made this happen.
Family Promise of Great Falls opened its doors and began accepting families into the program on January 11th, 2015.
Thanks to all volunteers and donors who made this possible.
For information on being accepted into the program, contact the director, Sharon Odden, at 406-866-0288.
