Family Promise MetroWest | The Dover Church

Family Promise MetroWest

The Dover Church is actively involved, as a founding member, in Family Promise Metrowest, a cooperative, interfaith partnership offering hope to homeless families with children through safe transitional shelter, meals, and supportive case management as they seek permanent housing. This nonprofit program was founded in 2008.

We provide shelter and meals to families in the network during the year though three 1-week long hosting opportunties. Families arrive at the church around 6:30 p.m. each weekday evening where they are welcomed by our volunteers, provided with a hot nutritious meal, a safe warm bedroom, support and fellowship.

Children stretching their arms

Every Sunday morning we gather to worship God with song, prayer, reflection and community. It sounds like a strange thing to do, but this is what defines us as God’s people in this place.
