My daughter and I entered Family Promise because we were struggling with money and a safe place to go. My mom referred me to this program and I am thankful for their help. Their helping me with trying to get my own place, Their very nice and I am fortunate to be in this program because without them I wouldn't know where i'd be right now and if my daughter would be safe. I would recommend this program to any family in need of help.

Before me and my family came to Family Promise, we were living in our van during the day and driving an hour to sleep at a family members house at night. I had hit rock bottom. My self esteem was next to nothing but I knew I had to do something for my kids. When entering the program I was given the needed resources to apply for housing. On top of providing us a safe place to live they gave us the essential hygiene products, diapers and food. Family Promise gave us not only a safe place to stay but also gave us hope and comfort. We now have a house to call our own again. I am currently back in college working on a Bachelor's Degree in Social Work. My kids are extremely happy and very greatful to Family Promise for helping us get back on our feet.

When I entered unto family Promise I was very stressed out and worried about the welfare and safety of my children and I, We were homeless for some time before i came into the family promise program, Since that day the stress and worry has been lifted and the staff helped me to figure out where to go and what the next steps I should take to get back on my feet. The program Helped get us into a routine and taught us to be stable. I was in the program for 9 weeks, and Now I have a new place to call home and I thank the family promise program and staff for all the help and for giving me hope to keep working towards my goals for a better life..
