BENEFITING: ALL WAYS UP FOUNDATION

THE STORY:

Raising funds can sometimes be a challenge, but this is a great cause and I cannot wait to rally up my friends and family to participate. It will be very exciting to make someone happy this Christmas! 

I've chosen to raise funds for Family Promise of East San Fernando Valley, a non-profit committed to helping low-income families in North Hollywood, Burbank, Glendale and Eagle Rock achieve lasting independences.  Family Promise helps mobilize communities to provide safe shelter, meals and support for homeless families.  Their mission is to provide help today and hope for tomorrow.

More information about the variety and scope of services provided: 

 

Family Promise of East San Fernando Valley (FP-ESFV) opened in July 2010 as one of over 160 networks across the country affiliated with Family Promise. Family Promise helps mobilize communities through programs designed to redress the  underlying causes of homelessness.   How Family Promise of East San Fernando Valley works:    Population served:  FP-ESFV provides  services  for  the  “situation-based”  homeless  family  with children. Our typical family is one with a steady employment history and is highly motivated to regain financial control of their life.  All families entering the  program are substance-abuse free, not involved in a current domestic violence situation, do not have any felony convictions on their records, and do not have any untreated psychiatric disorders that would prohibit their ability to live in a group setting.    Host Congregations:   About four times a year  – for a week at a time  – each host congregation provides a place to sleep, meals and compassionate hospitality for  up to four homeless families in the Family Promise program.     Volunteers:  Volunteers are the core of the Family Promise network. At the hosting sites, volunteers cook, serve meals, socialize with the guests, play with the children and stay overnight. Volunteers also help with running the Day Center, as well as fundraising activities and guest events.    Day Center: The Day Center is the business hub of our network. The Day Center is their daytime home base until 5:00p.m.   At the Day Center,  families work one-on-one with a professional case manager to look for employment, housing and address problems that stand in the way of permanent, independent housing. The Day Center also provides  families a mailing address, a place to shower, and a place to do laundry.    Social Services: In collaboration with regional agencies, our case manager works with families to find additional support services to help them with a sustainable transition out of homelessness. Partnering agencies and school districts often refer  families to our program for assessment. Family Promise ESFV serves to advance the continuum of care by providing preliminary assessment and referral services for homeless individuals and families that are not suited to our program.
