TBD, 2022
Families Moving Forward is a program of Beacon Interfaith Housing Collaborative. We host families four times a year that are temporarily homeless and moving toward permanent homes. In order to welcome and be hospitable to these families, many volunteers are needed. We do not have our schedule of hosting weeks for 2022 yet, but will share this information when it is available. There are many volunteer opportunities throughout the hosting week for individuals, families and small groups. Please consider joining us. For more information, please see our website or contact Ross Hanson at or Steve Smith at
