Family Promise at APC
Family Promise of N. Fulton / DeKalb
APC is a host congregation for Family Promise North Fulton/DeKalb. Four or five weeks each year, our campus serves as a shelter for families with children who are experiencing homelessness. Our lead volunteer for Family Promise at APC is Shannon Pickerel.
Our next Host Week will be January 3-10, 2021. We will host three new families.

During our host weeks, APC transforms our campus into a welcoming living space for our Family Promise guests. Breakfast, lunch and dinner are provided daily, along with occasional transportation of our guests utilizing the Family Promise transport van. Our guests are housed in classrooms in the main building, and meals are served in Fellowship Hall.
Guests arrive each evening after work and school, and they leave each morning by 7 am. Guests who are seeking employment receive services at the FPNFD Day Center inside St. Luke’s Presbyterian Church. The staff at FPNFD supports and guides our guests as they navigate the road to stability and transition to their new homes.
Each week that we host, APC will utilize 60-75 volunteers. Volunteer shifts can be as simple as cooking one dish for each meal, or as involved as spending the night. We have opportunities for any schedule, and if you can’t volunteer, we need lots of donations, too!
Please check the links on this page to view the volunteer shifts and donation needs for the upcoming host week. These are updated regularly, typically 3-4 weeks in advance of the host week.
In addition to APC’s needs, Family Promise also looks for support at the Day Shelter (St. Luke’s Presbyterian in Dunwoody). Volunteers and donations are always needed. Visit the FPNFD website for more details.
