    We partner with Family Promise of Greater Orlando to support the local Interfaith Hospitality Network (IHN). This ministry is composed of host and support congregations that provide volunteers, overnight accommodations, and meals at churches for three or four homeless families with children for one week at a time on a rotating schedule. First United Methodist Church of Orlando is one of the founding churches of the local Family Promise, established in July of 2003.

    Family Promise focuses on keeping families together, using a comprehensive approach as its case managers seek permanent housing, employment, daycare, health care and other social services necessary to assist guests trying to achieve independence and return to mainstream life. Follow-up case management is also available.
