Family Promise















For 8 years, NSCI has partnered with Family Promise Chicago North Shore, an Evanston-based coalition of interfaith houses of worship that care for and house families who are experiencing homelessness. These families are like ours. Circumstances have just brought them to a point of financial crisis and they have become homeless. To see a sample of the dinner and overnight responsibilities of volunteers, click here.


We are so grateful to all of you who have supported this initiative in the past, and of course, welcome new volunteers this year! We recently hosted families overnight at NSCI for two consecutive weeks in June 2023. We hope that you'll join us this coming year in welcoming families back through the NSCI doors. There are many ways for you and your family to participate behind the scenes or in-person to make our guest families feel comfortable and welcome:


- Drop off breakfast food for 2 days (fresh fruit, frozen waffles, syrup) 

- Drop off items for a healthy lunch to go for 2 days (bread, lunch meat, cheese, single-serve chips, apples)

- Provide dinner (homemade or store-bought) for 510 people and enjoy dining together with our guests

- Dinner volunteers are encouraged to stay and play with the children outside, weather permitting

- Drop off gift cards for Target or Walmart


L'Shalom,  Annice Moses, Mike Rosenthal, Ann Weisberg, and Rabbi Jacob Leizman
