During hard times, many people rely on relatives and friends for support. But for some parents struggling with social isolation this is not an option. That’s where the local church steps in to keep families intact!

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 support to unleash churches to stand in the gap to keep families together. 

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


There are many ways that you can serve isolated families as a volunteer! 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.
