Host congregations provide dinner, overnight accommodations, breakfast and a bag lunch.
Volunteers prepare meals, set up accommodations, stay with guests, read books, help with homework...and most importantly, offer their friendly support.
Local social service agencies refer families to the Network. The agencies may also help guests find housing, jobs and benefits.
The Network transports guests to and from the day center as well as between host congregations while children are transported to their school or origin.
Using a local day center, guests pursue employment, tend pre-school children, shower and do laundry.
