My son and I entered Family Promise in 2013. I am a single mom and my son was 3-6 months old at the time. While in the program we were provided with classes: budgeting and parenting were two I appreciated most. We were also assigned a case manager that helped us stay confident in achieving our goals. While at the churches we were treated with the up most respect. I have no idea where my life would have taken me if Family Promise wasn't an option!
