Help us continue to support and serve the food insecurity and homelessness needs of our community through Family Promise.
Serving Our Brownsburg Community Needs
Family Promise of Hendricks County provides emergency and permanent housing, homelessness prevention and stability services including childcare, rent & utility assistance, transportation, life skills, jobs and so much more.
The homeless work daily with Family Advocates to prepare them to move into their own home. This typically takes 60-90 days. Once housed, their families continue to receive support and love to maintain stability. Calvary hosts a Family Promise Week each year where we provide groceries and dinner meals for a week at the new shelter home called Almost Home. To learn more how you can participate in this local mission contact Anne Inman at: email@example.com or 317-504-9268.
Food Pantry Proxy
Once a week a volunteer picks up food from a Hendricks county food pantry and delivers it to 4 families who do not have a way to get to the pantries themselves. The group has recently grown from 6 volunteers to 10. Recently, proxy volunteers were able to coordinate with Family Promise to provide a family with a much needed air conditioner. If interested in volunteering, please contact Beth Mann at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Garden Of Eatin' Missions Garden
Our local Girl Scout Troop has been spending a lot of time in the garden already this spring! The bounty from the garden, like the radishes and broccolini that have come up so far, are being shared with nearby food pantries: Messiah Lutheran’s food pantry on the second and fourth Saturdays, and Cornerstone Christian’s pantry on the first and third Saturdays. Interested in helping? There is a Watering Sign-Up if you have a few minutes to share during the summer: https://www.signupgenius.com/go/20F0F44ADA92AA7FA7-watering
Feel free to walk out back behind the playground and take a look at the beds! We thank the Girls and their leader Abby for their awesome efforts!
Sheltering Wings provides emergency housing for survivors escaping domestic abuse. Their vision is to offer love, compassion and resources to help people who experience domestic violence survive and thrive.
Isaiah 117 House is a Christian-based organization that exists to reduce trauma for children entering the foster system, lighten the load for child welfare services, and ease the transition for foster families. When children are removed from their homes out of concern for their welfare, they are usually brought to the child welfare services office to await placement with a foster family. These children often have nothing with them and are scared, lonely, hungry, dirty and in desperate need of love and support. Isaiah 117 House provides a comforting home where these children, instead, can be brought to wait - a place that is safe with friendly and loving volunteers who provide clean, new clothes, smiles, toys, and snuggly blankets. For more information on how you can get involved in this local mission contact: Anne Inman at email@example.com or 317-504-9268.
Wishing Wings is a nonprofit organization developed to help children being placed within the foster care system. Going to a new foster home without the proper resources can be stressful and scary even for older kids who are often forgotten when it comes to donations, relocation needs, and support. This is why Wishing Wings has identified teenagers in need as their area of focus. Through the Wishing Wings program they hope to make a real difference in the lives of teens by providing them with dignity as well as clothing and other essentials.You can participate through the Grant a Wish Program and/ or Wishing Wings Boutique. For more information how you can get involved in this local mission contact: Anne Inman at firstname.lastname@example.org or 317-504-9268.
