Family Promise of Gallatin Valley is a non-profit network of diverse faith organizations working together to help Gallatin Valley's homeless families with children. St. James is pleased to have been the first area church to commit our resources in support of this most vital program.
Family Promise maintains a very current website at www.familypromisegv.org/ that provides a complete description of the various programs, volunteer training, current news and events.
St. James hosts families in our home-style Rectory for a week approximately every other month. We are always in need of volunteers to spend the night, cook meals, serve as evening hosts, do laundry, serve on our organizing committee, set up guest rooms, plan volunteer appreciation events, or assist in fulfilling families' special requests.
Saint James will be hosting Family Promise May 4 - May 11, 2014; September 14 - September 21, 2014 and November 30 - December 7, 2014.
