Local Partners

Join Us in Service

Floris UMC cares for families and individuals in need by providing fundamental necessities, such as food and clothing. We also partner with local organizations to provide shelter.

Below are some ways you can volunteer in our community through Floris UMC. For more information about any of these programs, contact Donna Porter at dporter@florisumc.org.

Current Opportunities

Each February, Floris Guest House hosts approximately 40 people without housing. Guests receive a hot dinner, breakfast, a place to sleep, a shower and the opportunity to participate in a variety of evening activities. Our volunteers are vital to making Floris Guest House a welcoming and safe environment.

Floris UMC has partnered with Cornerstones for more than 10 years. Through this partnership, Floris UMC participates in the North County Hypothermia Program. We provide up to 30 homeless people with a hot dinner at the North County Government Center in Reston, VA. This is a simple, tangible way to serve those without shelter in our immediate community.
