“Everybody can be great…because anybody can serve. You don’t have to have a college degree to serve. You don’t have to make your subject and verb agree to serve. You only need a heart full of grace. A soul generated by love.”

Martin Luther King

The foundation of Family Promise of Waukesha County are our volunteers.  Volunteers serve guests at each congregation by creating a welcoming atmosphere, providing meals, fellowship,  and staying overnight.  Without these volunteers we could not offer shelter to families experiencing homelessness.

Other volunteers help with administrative tasks, providing guest transportation, offering childcare, cleaning or staffing the day center.   

Our goal is to match your talents and interests with our needs. 

We take service to our families very seriously and we want our volunteers to be successful.  Therefore training and orientation is required of all our volunteers.
