Next Hosting week is September 24 – October 1, 2017

 Families Moving Forward is a program of Beacon Interfaith Housing Collaborative. In 2012, Faith Lutheran Church signed a covenant to host families from Scott and Carver counties through the Families Moving Forward program. We host families four times a year. In 2018 we are starting a new leadership style called the TEAM of 10.  We will have about 10 people that will divide up the leadership roles  for this awesome ministry.
