Reviews for Family Promise Of Lawrence Inc

Rating: 5 stars  

Family Promise of Lawrence is one of the most effective and engaging service programs in Douglas County, Kansas. Truly a community response to homelessness, FPL transforms the lives of families and children in crisis. Volunteers who host through participating congregations learn to put their faith into action right within the walls of their own house of worship. It's an extraordinary way for families to connect with families, and for all of us to grow in love of neighbor. Keep up the good work, FPL!
