Christ Church, Newton, Supports Family Promise of Sussex County, Inc.
Christ Church Newton is actively engaged in supporting Family Promise of Sussex County (formerly known as the Interfaith Hospitality Network), as part of our parish mission to be Christ's presence in our community. Approximately 4 weeks out of the year, Christ Church throws open its doors to our homeless neighbors, providing shelter, meals and support to families of all shapes and sizes.
A network of volunteers from local congregations provides emergency shelter, meals and support services to families and single women who are homeless. Volunteers offer encouragement as families in trouble try to survive and stay together.
