How We Help

When Someone Needs Help
If you or someone you know is among the homeless or working poor and is in need of help, how do we respond? Frequently we do not know what services are available, and we may need help finding help.
In Monroe County the first information stop is PoconoInfo (a service of Pocono Alliance). The PoconoInfo web site offers an online search capability to find available services, or you can call 570-517-3954 during normal working hours.

Family Promise of Monroe County:
Visit the web site of Family Promise of Monroe County to see all the latest about our on-going events.
Family Promise accepts donations for clothing (clothes, bedding, purses, shoes, belts, towels, etc.) throughout the year. Call the Family Promise Day Center to arrange a time to drop off your donations. Families in the program and others who come seeking help go through the clothing and take what they need. Anything remaining is sold to help fund the Family Promise program.

Valor:
MHT collects donations suitable for homeless veterans living on the streets (sturdy clothes, shoes, sleeping bags, toiletries, etc.) for distribution thru Valor. Call Allen Seaman at 570-839-2362 if you have donations. For a complete list of items needed see the Valor website.

Treasure Trove:
We can find a home for almost anything in good condition through local charities.
We accept all usable, practical items.

Cash donations are needed to offset the $75/month cost of our storage unit (The Treasure Trove). Make check to MHT and drop off at the parish office. Thanks to the Pocono Lions Club and the Knights of Columbus for help with this expense. Any questions, call Elaine Madere 732--995-3370 or email at elaine_madere@yahoo.com.

Community Meal Support Request

Family Promise
of Monroe County

Family Promise of Monroe County provides safe shelter, meals and support services for homeless families with children through a collaborative network of local congregations.

In Monroe County twelve Host Churches provide overnight accomodations for families and seventeen Support Churches provide them with meals and volunteers.

Most Holy Trinity is a Support Church but in need of a Parish coordinator.  We help during the weeks that the Host church houses the guests overnight.  We help by volunteering to:
• Make meals and serve them at 5Pm, then stay with the family until 8PM, or
• Arrive at 8PM and sleep over at the Host church and stay until the families leave at about 5:30 AM.

Training is provided to new volunteers.  The first time you help, an experienced volunteer will be paired with you. If you would like to volunteer, please contact TBD. This is much easier than it sounds and is rewarding and heartwarming.
