Quarterly

Westminster volunteers as a host church in partnership with Family Promise of Southern Chester County to address the need for emergency shelter in our area.  We provide overnight lodging and meals for 4 families (up to 14 people) for one week each calendar quarter.  “Guests” stay in the church building from 6:00 p.m. until 7:00 a.m. daily.  Each morning, guests go to jobs, school, or the Day Center in West Grove, where they care for preschool children and seek housing and employment.
