Family Promise of Lorain County is an incredible organization. It is really a testament to the ability of a motivated group of people to make a real difference. It works differently than many homelessness organizations by focusing very specifically and making a real difference in people's lives, which means that they really are life changing for the people they work with. They really give hope to Lorain County.

Our church is a host church that provides meals and housing for some wonderful families that are experiencing a blip in their lives and need a short term break. This program gives church members the opportunity serve the community and live their faith. It gives the church the chance to utilize their facility to provide housing in a safe and loving environment for families, especially the children. Stressful days and times often take a backseat to the love and caring by church volunteers as they give generously of their time in coming in and assisting wherever the families as best they can. We also get the opportunity to interface with other churches and denominations which otherwis would not happen.

Our church hosts the families assisted by Family Promise several times a year. I also assist with the annual fundraiser concert held at our church each year and am on the Publicity Committee. As you can see I fully support Family Promise with my time and through our donations. Through the years I have met several families who have fallen on hard times and have had to come to the day center requesting assistance. They are a joy to visit with. Through Family Promise they are given food and shelter through the county churches, and given guidance in seeking employment, education, housing, learning to work out a budget and any social service that they may need to be referred. The children are taken care of by being sent to their home schools. The people involved with this organization truly believe in their commitment to help families realize their own potential.

My church hosts Family Promise families four weeks a year and as a volunteer, I have been witness to many strong people working very hard to provide for their families. Our whole congregation rejoices with families as they get jobs, housing, etc. We feel a part of their lives, as we mourn their losses and cheer their successes. Our parish has learned that these are just regular people and that any one of us could have the same challenges. This is a new attitude for many of our members. We have grown immensely in the Spirit because of our involvement in Family Promise.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

Watching many families become more confident as they become less and less dependent on the "system" to provide for their children.
