Homelessness


Many Wisconsin congregations offer aid to people experiencing homelessness.  Here are some resources you may be interested in.

The Lamplight Concert
The Lamplight Concert is a resource available to your congregation to raise funds for homeless shelters.  This concert was created by Kate Jennings and is supported by a grant from First Congregational United Church of Christ in River Falls.  Learn more>

Family Promise
A number of Wisconsin UCC churches are participating in the Family Promise program in their area. The Family Promise mission is to help homeless and low-income families achieve sustainable independence through a community-based response.  Family Promise operates on a local level by developing and supporting affiliates that address family homelessness right in their own community.  Learn more at familypromise.org.

Is your congregation involved in a Family Promise program? If so, please let us know by emailing resourcecenter@wcucc.org.  Also we’d love to hear your story!
