Become an FPM Advocate

DURATION

2-4 hours

WHERE

In communities throughout Metrowest Boston: from Southborough to Needham; Sudbury to Medfield; and every community in between. Help us to identify community events in your town where you could set up a booth and share information about our mission and the issue of family homelessness.

WHEN

Throughout the year

WHOSE HELP IS REQUIRED

Adults aren't the only ones who can effectively communicate about Family Promise. Our teen-aged volunteers have a way of attracting huge swaths of people to our booths at outreach events.

HOW IT MAKES A DIFFERENCE

Time and again we witness synchronicities when individuals like you are in the right place at the right time and are able to communicate our mission and the needs of our families. Whether you share your FPM knowledge with friends/family/neighbors or to more formal audiences, miracles happen when our volunteers share what they learn. 

DESCRIPTION

Complete Volunteer Orientation and become an FPM advocate. Family homelessness is best addressed when members of the community are educated and aware of the complexity of the issue and are willing to help us make connections in their communities.


ITEMS NEEDED

We will provide everything you will need: a tablecloth, marketing collateral, children's activities as appropriate, etc. All you need is a passion and willingness to spread the word about the needs of our families and the work Family Promise is doing to help.

  2. Identify outreach opportunities in your community. For example, Natick Days is an annual event for non-profits to share their mission with local residents. Does your community have a similar event? Perhaps you belong to a professional group that would benefit from knowing about us - educators, first responders, realtors/property managers, etc.
  3. Represent FPM at your local outreach event. We can provide marketing collateral and activities to support you!
