Afghan Refugee Resettlement

Make a House a Home--Update

FPLC has a committee of devoted members who are sponsoring a refugee family from Afghanistan. With the tremendous generosity of our FPLC and extended family, we have the donations needed to fully furnish and outfit an apartment for 5. 

Things are moving quickly with the resettlement program. From the caotic departure from Afghanistan to their settlement in homes across the country, things can change on a dime with refugee families. The family we were assigned is instead moving to a different part of the country where they have family. Having that support will be invaluable and we are grateful they can make that move!


LSS has informed us that we will receive the next family of 4 or 5 for the apartment we have secured. Therefore, we intend to proceed as planned with furnishing it now! We'll be ready to go as soon as a family is assigned!

Food Drives

FPLC collects food and personal care products every week, the need is great! Simply drop your donations in the temporary church office (8050 N Port Washington Rd.) Monday-Thursday 9 am - 3 pm. Our volunteers take turns delivering the items to 4 area parishes/organizations with which we partner.

All Peoples Ministries

From garden work to student tutoring, All Peoples has come up with great ideas to support their mission during Covid! There are several ways you can help and support their goals. We have started our annual School Supply Drive for the students of All Peoples as well.

The Gathering

The Gathering is committed to serving their guests, even during Covid-19. After working with the health department during the pandemic, they've changed their methods, but the goals are the same...to help feed the hungry in body, mind, and spirit, they've adjusted our methods of sanitizing, preparing & distributing food to ensure we are being safe. THEY NEED YOUR HELP!

 

If you are healthy and willing, they'd love to have your help packaging bag lunches. Volunteer numbers are limited and spaced in a large hall.

 

We have dates that are specific to FPLC (click button below to sign up). If you can't make those dates but still would like to volunteer, please go directly to The Gathering's Volunteer Page (button below) to sign up for any of their open dates and locations.

Serentiy Inns & Alumni House

Serenity Inn's goal is to provide a safe place for men in Milwaukee to recover from their addiction to either drugs or alcohol.  FPLC volunteers provide dinner to the residents 3 times a month. Eat with the men, drop dinner off or even order them a meal to be delivered by a restaurant! They are following COVID-19 protocols. For more information on volunteering, Covid requirements, and/or to sign up, click the "Make a Meal" button below. It's a great activity to do with your middle/high school-aged youth so they can hear the anti-drug/alcohol message.

 

If you can't make the FPLC dates, or they are full, you can sign up for other dates directly through Serenity Inns' volunteer page. Just click the button below to go to that page.
