"Leading the fight against homelessness, one family at a time."
Night Without a Bed is coming on June 26th, 2021!
#NightWithoutABed is a social media challenge that raises awareness for families experiencing homelessness. We ask participants to sleep anywhere without a bed: cars, a tent, a treehouse, living room floor, a couch and use the hashtag #NightWithoutABed to post a video blog or photo with a short blog entry to describe their experiences. In the run-up to the event, participants will challenge another
friend to complete the #NightWithoutABed or make a donation to Family Promise.
Rev. Brian Diggs has over 20 years of experience leading United Methodist congregations and non-profit organizations into deeper action and commitment to mission. He was the director at UMCOR (The United Methodist Committee on Relief) West Office and Depot since it opened in 2009. Prior to working with UMCOR, Diggs served as senior pastor of First United Methodist Church in Salt Lake City for 10 years.
Since arriving in Salt Lake City in 1997, Rev. Diggs has supported the work and mission of Family Promise and is excited to help lead Family Promise in our continued effort to provide housing and sustainable independence for homeless families. Rev. Diggs is an ordained clergy person in the Mountain Sky Annual Conference of the United Methodist Church and received his M. Div. from the Duke Divinity School in Durham, North Carolina. His focus was on liturgy as ethical formation.
We work with faith communities throughout the area to provide resources for families facing homelessness. With the support of the community, we help children and families build long-term stability.
Family Promise Salt Lake and our dedicated volunteers have been helping families in the Salt Lake area for decades. Faith congregations throughout our community help us feed, house, and serve families and children experiencing homelessness. With your support, we can make a lasting impact on our community and continue to serve those who need it most.
