Family Promise

Riverside Church partners with Family Promise, a national group partnering with area churches committed to assist children and their families who are experiencing homelessness in the communities of Big Lake, Elk River, Monticello, Otsego, Rogers, and Zimmerman, MN.

Their mission is to provide children and their families who are experiencing homelessness the opportunity to achieve housing stability by providing short term shelter, food, case management and hospitality utilizing local resources within churches and the community. Family Promise is a cooperative, interfaith, ministry providing an opportunity for the community to be actively involved in addressing the needs of families experiencing homelessness.

Volunteers are needed to help set up the church building, donate and prepare food, host families and clean up. It's a great place to serve with others, including your family or small group. Riverside will host one week during the summer of 2020:
