FAMILY PROMISE OF BUTLER COUNTY Please consider utilizing your talents to assist with the modifications needed as Family Promise of Butler County transitions its day center to a hybrid model. What is a hybrid model, you may ask. It is the ability to house guests, in the absense of a host church congregation, whether it be in hotel rooms or apartments. With the layout of the day center in Hamilton as is, we will be able to redesign the floor plan, creating individual apartments for the families. To complete this major undertaking, we are searching for able bodied men and women to assist in the renovations.  Please check out the various labor requests and sign up as your schedule allows: Volunteers: Family Promise of Butler County Volunteer Opportunities (   THANK YOU!
