Help to Host PIHN Families

USG will Host Three PIHN Families in Need
Sunday, August 18 – Sunday, September 1, 2019

PIHN is the Philadelphia Interfaith Hospitality Network that assists homeless families work their way to permanent housing. The agency has over a 92% success rate of families who gain permanent housing through their efforts.

From Sunday, August 18 through Sunday, September 1, USG will host three families.

USG as a church provides the overnight shelter: our three Sullivan rooms as bedrooms, and use of the kitchen, dining room and restrooms in the mornings and evenings.

We ask USG members and friends to be…
dinner hosts, usually in partnership with another person, offering evening meals (that you prepare at home or at USG), and a welcoming physical presence as hosts each evening of their stay, from 6:00 – 8:30pm.
overnight hosts from 8:30pm until 7:00am, providing a layer of security for the families and for our church, being available should the need arise, and sleeping in Kent’s air-conditioned office (cot provided).

Can’t host? Donate money for groceries, pick up needed groceries, or help families move in on August 18 or out on September 1. (Childcare will probably be needed, Sarah Frazier!) 

See Carolyn during Fellowship Hour on July 28, August 4 or August 11 to sign up to help!
