BENEFITING: FAMILY PROMISE OF EAST BELL COUNTY INC
EVENT DATE: May 21, 2016
Through the help of our many community partners, we are strategically working with homeless families to provide hope and direction. The mother in a family that went through our program in recent years felt compelled by the help she had received through Family Promise at a desperate moment. She secured stable employment, achieved work promotions, maintained safe housing and advanced the well-being of her family in many other ways. This mom decided she wanted to give back to Family Promise, and we were recently privileged to welcome her to our Board of Directors. While not every story ends in such resounding success, we see small victories daily. After submitting dozens of applications, a dad finally finds a job. A single mom gets approved for low-income housing. A family decides to pursue counseling and then follows through. Parents learn a new skill during financial literacy classes. Church volunteers provide a home-cooked meal and friendly conversation at the end of a long day. These are the building blocks, as we work with families to change their own lives.
