I am happy to be a Pastor of a church who hosts families of Family Promise. It is a joy to be part of this life changing organization. I had a chance to see a family, a single mother with two young children, move into an apartment after staying in Family Promise for several months. They were so excited to get back on their feet with some tools (weekly seminars from professionals in the community), furniture to furnish the place, and a new scooter.
