"Let the good in me connect with the good in others, until all the world is transformed through the compelling power of love." (Reb Nachman of Breslov)
We see ourselves as richly blessed with the opportunity to help repair our world. We begin this work with one another - how we interact within our community on a daily basis - with respect, compassion and patience. We then look beyond the doors of our community to address other needs and issues. We open our community to those in need providing shelter, safety, food and support. We regularly give back to our community by participating with other faith communities in the holy work of tikkun olam, repairing the world. We actively work through Praying With Our Legs and its partner organizations for social justice, an end to hatred and a world in which all people are seen as created in the image of God.
THE TENT is proud to partner with Family Promise of South Palm Beach County. Family Promise of South Palm Beach County believes that every child deserves a home. Family Promise empowers families in making their transition from homelessness to sustainable independence. They are an organization that depends on approximately 1,200 active volunteers representing 20 interfaith congregations to accomplish their objectives of providing temporary shelter, food, life skills education and other individual assessments so that they receive the appropriate services.
Approximately once a month we volunteer with Family Promise for one evening (5pm-8pm), providing dinner for the families and sharing kindness, compassion and warmth during some social time. A limited number of people can participate each month so make sure to "answer the call" when it goes out each month.
