Family Promise is an Interfaith Alliance in the Salt Lake area that assists recently homeless families to get back their feet with temporary shelter and support. Wasatch is a founding member and hosts 4 families once each quarter, providing them with access to our facility and the loving care of our congregation. Many opportunities are available to volunteer including hosting the families, cooking meals, setup/teardown for the week, and laundry.  For more information, contact our Family Promise Chair, Allison Clements, at allisonclements@gmail.com.
