Family Promise Metrowest (FPM) Support Congregation
Family Promise Metrowest (FPM) is a cooperative, interfaith partnership offering hope to homeless families with children. FPM provides safe transitional shelter, meals,
and supportive case management as these families seek permanent housing.
ICB initially partnered with FPM in 2012 by providing financial support. Later, an ICB volunteer group formed and ICB became more proactive in this cause. In 2013, we became a support congregation to Peace Lutheran Church and to Temple Or Atid (Wayland, MA). In 2015, ICB also became a support congregation to Temple Shir Tikva (Wayland, MA).
As a support congregation, ICB Sunday School students, under supervision of their teachers, help the host congregations prepare for the arrival and departure arrangements of the homeless families. ICB parents and other adult volunteers help at dinners for these families, by preparing and serving meals. ICB members also participate in an annual FPM Walkathon, intended for fundraising as well as raising awareness to Fight Away Homelessness.
