When difficult circumstances arise, many people rely on relatives and friends for support. But for some parents struggling with social isolation and/or poverty, this is not an option. That’s where the Church steps in! 

Learn more about our model.

We mobilize local churches to champion family preservation in our community. 

Church Partnership 

Our work is only possible through partnership with local churches. Partner Churches make Alongside Families a ministry of their church and actively work to recruit and support volunteers and to welcome and serve partnering families. 

We provide the model and equipping so that churches can be the hands and feet of Christ to isolated families. We partner with both small and large churches with a heart for family preservation.

Learn more about how your church can get involved and our current partner churches.


There are multiple ways that you can serve isolated families with Alongside Families. All of our volunteers serve through their local church, and we seek volunteers who align with our vision and statement of faith. If you have a skillset in addition to our main volunteer roles that you would like to share with us, we want to hear from you! Fill out our interest form so we can get in touch with you.
