Home and Hope (formerly Interfaith Hospitality Network) affords UUSM members and friends the opportunity to provide shelter, meals, and support services to families without homes.
Hosting rotates weekly among the host congregations in our network. In turn, each host congregation provides lodging, three meals daily, and welcoming care. Volunteers provide various services, including
- Cooking and serving meals
- Playing with children or helping them with homework
- Interacting with guests, with respect and compassion
If you would like to find out more about our participation in the program, please contact Joy Thomas.
Home and Hope programs vary from community to community, reflecting local needs and resources. To find out more about San Mateo Home and Hope, please see their website.
