Network of Knoxville Churches Open To Homeless

On Saturday night self described ‘Jill-of-all-trades’ Denesse McBayne devoted herself to her real passion– cooking.

“We’re not only feeding their bodies,” says McBayne. “We’re feeding their spirit.”

She spent the afternoon at the Episcopal Church of the Good Shepherd whipping up a Caribbean feast to feed the members of the Family Promise program.

For one week, four times a year, a network of 16 churches throughout the Knoxville area take turns hosting homeless families of all sizes and descriptions.

    Great story – we have Family Promise here in Utah (Salt Lake City), and there is a significant group of churches, including St. John’s Anglican in Park City, which participate. Highly recommend this program.
