Family Promise of Greater New Braunfels

UUNB has pledged to be a Support Congregation in this interfaith effort to assist homeless families find steady employment and a home of their own. We volunteer at the day center, partner with Unity Church in feeding the families, and donate funds either directly, or individually, or as a sustaining member, the ongoing vehicle for funding this great program that moves families from homelessness to self sufficiency. Donations can be made through Paypal at the Family Promise of Greater New Braunfels website or ask any Service Committee member for a pledge card.
