From time to time we have families that need a little more than most. These families, even while working full-time, need to save their earnings for future success. We like to have emergency funds and fun funds to help these families. Emergency funds help them with such things as car repairs, paying fees/getting caught up on bills and medical costs so the family can keep working and get back on track. Fun Funds help provide a party and/or gifts for a child’s birthday celebration or a fun family outing event, like going to the movies. Whatever it is, it is unique to the family that a donor will adopt for a specified amount of time.
Shelter & Housing:
Funds designated for this purpose help Family Promise provide shelter, Eviction Prevention and Shelter Diversion case management to families in crisis until we can get them back to stabilization. For some, it will be the first time they experience what it is like to have a stable living environment. Donations provided here ensure the children and families we serve always have a safe place to lay their heads at night.
To help families that have spent all their savings on the high cost of living and find themselves one emergency away from homelessness or one emergency potentially keeping them from re-entering stable housing. These funds cover such things as car repairs to make sure parents are able to get to and from work, medical bills, late fees or utility bills.
