Family Promise at the Church of St. Timothy
Church of St. Timothy Building Communities and Strengthening Lives click on logo below to go to the local Family Promise that we are in relationship with.
In February 2010, the Church of St. Timothy joined Family Promise in Anoka County, as a host congregation. Family Promise is an interfaith hospitality network that was formed in this area for the purpose of providing temporary shelter for homeless children and families.
Each network is comprised of about 13 interfaith "host" congregations and some "support" congregations. There are currently 6 netwoks in the State of Minnesota; one in Brainerd, Cambridge, Rochester, two in Minneapolis and ours in Anoka County as of September 5, 2010. The program started in 1986, in New Jersey. There are about 153 networks nationwide, with dozens more in development. It takes about one and one-half years to get a network organized, up and running.
