MIHN VOLUNTEER GROUPS
VOLUNTEERS CHANGING LIVES!
The Midland Interfaith Hospitality Network (MIHN) relies on partnerships with local congregations, organizations, businesses/companies and other volunteer groups to help local families in the grips of homelessness.
IF YOUR CONGREGATION, ORGANIZATION, BUSINESS/COMPANY IS LOOKING FOR A WAY TO ENGAGE YOUR PEOPLE IN A VOLUNTEER OPPORTUNITY IN THE MIDLAND COMMUNITY THAT WILL MAKE A HUGE DIFFERENCE IN THE LIVES OF CHILDREN AND THEIR FAMILIES, THEN THIS MAY BE THE OPPORTUNITY!
Local congregations, organizations, businesses/companies provide a week's worth of food for the persons in the program (up to 4 families, 14 people), anywhere from 1 - 4 times a year.
During the "Host" week, the volunteers prepare dinner for the families, serving the meal at our Day Center and engaging in fellowship with families over dinner.
It's a fabulous opportunity to interact with the persons for whom you are volunteering. It's a golden opportunity to dispel the stereotype of what homelessness "looks" like. It's a GREAT way to 'give back' for the Blessings you've received in your life!
To learn more about how you can make a difference in the lives of others through Family Promise of Midland, please call 432-218-8231.
Provide food for a week for up to 4 families/14 people (approx. $200-$250 expense)
Provide a minimum of 2 volunteers each night from Sunday through Saturday, for approximately 1 hour each night (5:45 p.m. - 6:45 p.m.), 1 - 4 weeks a year, to share dinner and fellowship with the families.
If you so chose, engage families in a fun activity of your choice for a maximum of two nights during your host week.
Be yourself and enjoy getting to know others!
We need your help! Will you get involved! We ARE asking!
WE THANK OUR DEDICATED VOLUNTEERS!
