The “One Congregation. One Family.” (OCOF) program is a faith-based approach to ending homelessness and housing instability. The mission is to partner with and engage the local faith community as mentors to families transitioning from shelters to their own housing units. Mentors will develop and foster meaningful relationship that promote hope and purpose to help those in need achieve and sustain self-sufficiency.
The purpose of the training is to learn more about the OCOF program, its purpose, goals and objectives. Congregations are asked to form “Faith Mentor Teams” comprised of 5 - 6 volunteers who will make a six month commitment to the program. The training will make clear the expectations of the Faith Mentor Teams as well as those of the families. It will address any questions or concerns. The training will last approximately 4 hours.
