Family Promise of Lorain County is an organization that works tirelessly to meet the needs of homeless families in our community. The staff and volunteers are professional, compassionate and willing to go the extra mile to help those in need.
Before moving to NC a little over a year ago, I volunteered at Family Promise of Lorain County for 2 years assisting with PR and fund raising. While I never worked directly with the guests, I did have the pleasure to meet a few and it truly changed my way of thinking. In these stressful economic times where the need for assistance is increasing and the available funds are decreasing, I was impressed with how much Family Promise could do with what they had. The donations that are given and the funds that are raised are used directly to benefit the families in need on so many levels. The staff, members of the board and all the volunteers both at the local host churches and from the community are extremely dedicated to the families that they serve. I will always be grateful for the time I was able to spend helping Family Promise and happy to say that I continue to assist them any way I can, even from 700 miles away.
