Share the Plate
For the month of December, UCN shares the plate with Family Promise of Ozaukee County. Family Promise of Ozaukee's mission is to provide services to help stabilize Ozaukee County homeless children and families, reverse the causes of homelessness, and optimize self-sufficiency. Last year, UCN designated Family Promise as its congregation-wide Social Justice project.
Family Promise is made up of a coalition of this county's churches, including UCN, who have committed to provide temporary housing and hospitality to area families who find themselves facing homelessness. Families will have dinner and fellowship at church, then be provided with a safe space in the church to stay overnight, followed by breakfast in the morning.
Additionally, Family Promise plans to open a day center for the use of homeless families. During the day, the center will provide a safe place to access laundry and bathing facilities, to search for resources such as housing, job opportunities and educational opportunities, and to send and receive postal mail.
