Seacoast Family Promise


Homelessness has many causes and many faces. It can affect anyone, even those who have worked hard all of their lives. It is such a blessing that our church is a host for the Family Promise program.

Family Promise helps in guiding families who are experiencing homelessness toward stabilized housing. The program and its volunteers provide families with a light of hope filled with compassion, love and caring during a time of crisis and uncertainty. It gives volunteers the opportunity to be “the hands and feet of Jesus in this world”.

“Bear one another’s burdens, and so fulfill the law of Christ.”  Galatians 6:2

Because of Covid-19, the SFP families are staying at Joshua House in Greenland.  

The  2021 dates for our weeks to volunteer are below.  During normal times, volunteers would be taking care of meals and other needs at Hampton UMC during these weeks, but for the remainder of 2021, we will be providing and delivering the evening meal to the Joshua House for the families.

  • May 30 – June 5
  • July 25 – July 31
  • October 24 – October 30 
  • December 19 – December 25
