Because of the COVID-19 safety precautions, we are unable to to have close contact between volunteers and our family members at this time. However, there are still opportunities to help!
If you would like to provide meals for our families on Wednesdays or bring groceries on Sundays please check out our sign up page! We are encouraging our families to cook and eat at home to help with their budget planning.
Here is the new 2021 SignUpGenius link for volunteer opportunities. All info about delivering, etc. is within the SignUp (exact address of the house is emailed a few days before delivery to those who have signed up – for confidentiality purposes).
Another way to help is through purchasing items that are needed. We currently have two wish lists of items for our transitional house:
Our items most in need are monetary donations (to help toward case management and motel stays) or gift cards.
• Grocery Stores (Ralph’s, Vallarta, etc.)
• Gas Stations
• Lyft/Uber (for our family members without transportation to/from work during off-bus time hours)
• Lowes/Home Depot
• Kohl’s (for clothing needs)
You can email the gift card codes or mail monetary donations and/or the gift card with a copy of receipt to:
Family Promise of SCV
24820 Orchard Village Rd, Ste A391
Santa Clarita, CA, 91355
You can also follow us on our Facebook page for other opportunities that might pop up last minute.
The following will resume when it safe to do so.
What can you do to help families in need?
There are many ways for volunteers to contribute their time and efforts at Family Promise. No matter the size of your involvement, anything (and everything) you can do or give will help in a big way. Training and orientation are provided for all volunteers.

Host Congregation volunteers provide hospitality to Family Promise guest families through their congregations. These volunteers provide meals, overnight hospitality, and a friendly face.
Support Congregations provide volunteers to a nearby Host Congregation to help support their team.
Each Host and Support Congregation has a volunteer who coordinates hosting activities for their congregation. Volunteer Coordinators (VC) work closely with the Network Director to meet the needs of guest families.

Family Promise needs many volunteers who are interested in assisting with special events, fundraisers or serving on a Board committee.
Training/Tutoring for Guest Families
Share your skill sets by teaching classes in parenting, budgeting, nutrition, computer skills, reading, art or anything else you can dream up!
