OUR NEXT FFH DATES: FEBRUARY 24 – JANUARY 2
Faith Family Hospitality is an interfaith program in northern Larimer County that provides temporary overnight lodging, fellowship, and an evening meal and breakfast for families with children facing homelessness. Participating faith communities open places of worship on a rotating basis to host up to four families for one week several times a year.
About Faith Family Hospitality
The host and support congregations recruit between 35-70 volunteers for each week they host. The staff at The Sister Mary Alice Murphy Center for Hope provides intake, screening, and case management. Families accepted into the program are referred to congregations where they have a room of their own in which to safely keep their belongings, can spend the night, and are provided fellowship, an evening meal and breakfast. Families meet weekly with the FFH family advocate (part-time social worker) and can remain in the program while they pursue their goal of finding affordable, permanent housing.
Since the founding of Faith Family Hospitality in Fort Collins in January 2012, the program has been recognized as a tremendous success in our community. We encourage you to learn more about the program, who’s involved, upcoming events/benefits, ways you can help, and how to make financial gifts.
Faith Family Hospitality at OSLC
Our Saviour’s Lutheran Church is one of 13 host sites for Faith Family Hospitality (FFH). As a host site, OSLC, along with our support congregation St. Luke’s Episcopal Church, will provide fellowship, overnight housing, meals and support to local families experiencing homelessness.
During the last rotation we had 67 volunteers who served 250 meals and provided safety, shelter and support for 4 families including 13 children who ranged in age from 7 months to 13 years. Please join us in participating in this valuable program! Volunteers make this program possible!
