A Church-Based Approach to Ending Family Homelessness

Start a Neighboring Group

100_2723   Mentors 100_2055

We are delighted that you are interested in offering friendship to a family facing homelessness! To form a neighboring group at your church:

  • Discuss the possibility of a neighboring group with as many people as possible within your church, such as members of Sunday School classes, women’s groups, small groups, or the mission committee. Bridge of Hope has brochures, DVDs, and bulletin inserts that explain neighboring.
  • Invite a Bridge of Hope staff person or volunteer to speak at your church about this ministry opportunity.
  • When 6 to 10 people commit to being in a neighboring group, the Bridge of Hope staff will train the neighbors and match them with a single mother and her children.
