It Takes a Village
 The Village Support Network gives families the resources they need to succeed and thrive.  If you are interested in developing a more meaningful relationship with those in need, this is an incredible opportunity.

Village Support Teams are composed of 4-6 volunteers from a single congregation. Each team member commits approximately 4-6 hours a month over six months to work with a family transitioning from shelter to housing. Each team receives four hours of initial orientation and training, plus an additional four hours of continuing education over the course of their six-month commitment. Teams work with families to set up action plans, develop budgets, and settle into their new homes and communities.

If you have any questions or would like to get involved, contact Susanna Rempel via email or phone at (503) 941-8648.
