FAMILY PROMISE OF LAWRENCE INC
November 13, 2009

I got involved with the program when it was in it's infancy and have watched and participated as it has blossomed. And blossomed it has! Beyond my expectations really. I think God has really blessed this effort and the fruits being born out of it are all the proof one needs of that! My wife and are one of the coordinator couples at our church and it is an absolute joy and honor to work this program. With that said, I think the one thing that can be made better is more consistency across the various churches as to how things are handled for the overnights. The guests can get a bit frustrated that what is allowed at one place is not at another. This is getting better though as the coordinators have opportunity to get together and discuss procedures. Overall though, the program is well thought out, there is an excellent board and program coordinator, and most of all... RESULTS!

The Great!

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

seeing the homeless utilize the program to get back on their feet and not only get into permanent housing, but get their self-esteem back and gain knowledge to keep from getting homeless again.

More feedback

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

seeing people change as they go through the program. It's very inspiring!

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

expand and help more people! The program works. It's proven in this community and many, many others.
