Family Homelessness Team Ministry

A desire to put one’s faith into action is all that is needed for anyone wanting to focus on the tragic problem of family homelessness.

This Pilgrim Church team ministry was formed to work on the issue of Family Homelessness in Massachusetts. Under the initial guidance of two established organizations, Cooperative Metropolitan Ministries and the One Family Campaign, the Pilgrim Church Family Homelessness Ministry seeks to actively work with these two organizations in helping with the hands-on, education and advocacy efforts that are so desperately needed. Our most recent partnership in the fight against family homelessness in Massachusetts is with Family Promise Metrowest (formerly the Interfaith Hospitality Network). Through Family Promise Metrowest Pilgrim Church hosted the first family in the program back in 2008 and we look forward to the many more opportunities to serve.

A transient lifestyle is hard enough on single adults but it is devastating for children. If you are concerned about families who move from shelter to shelter, crowd into too-small apartments with relatives, or worse yet, end up sleeping in parking lots in their cars and wish to help with this ministries efforts, please call the church at 508-655-1667 for further information on ways you can participate and/or help.  There are opportunities available for hands-on activites, educating people about family homelessness and social advocacy. If you are interested in being a part of the Family Homelessness Team Ministry please contact Peg Robinson at 508-655-7372.
