  • New Affiliates Open in Oregon and Missouri

    Lincoln County Director Linda Roy and Family Advocate Julie Pearson.
    We proudly welcome two new Affiliates—Family Promise of Lincoln County, Oregon, our third Affiliate in the Beaver State, and Family Promise of the Northland in Kansas City, Missouri, our very first Affiliate in the “Show Me” State.

    In Lincoln County, efforts began when the homeless advocate for the school district, Hanna Connett, grappled with how to serve the hundreds of homeless children in this rural community on the dank but ruggedly beautiful Oregon coast. She connected with Donna Lawson and efforts to start the program commenced. Over time, Donna and Tom Cioffi lent a hand and Kathy Christenson did the opening training.

    10-year-old Leslianys.
    “Someday soon, I will have a place to call home. I am the face of Family Promise.”

    So said 10-year-old Leslianys, a guest in our Union County program, at Family Promise’s 6th Annual “Our Promise to Children” Breakfast at Baltusrol Golf Club in Springfield, New Jersey on May 14. Leslianys was one of several Breakfast attendees who shared how they were involved with, and a face of, the Family Promise community.

  • A New Gulf Coast Affiliate

    Board members Mike Bass, Deborah Humphrey and Skip Wilson cut the ribbon at the Grand Opening.
    Family Promise of Greater Brandon marks our 10th Affiliate in the Sunshine State, and first in the Tampa metro area. Efforts began with a volunteer who knew of the program and wanted to bring it to his home city, a bedroom community east of Tampa. Two years ago, the board coalesced and, under Donna Watson Lawson’s guidance, put together an aggressive plan toward opening.
  • Welcome Genesee County

    Jim Hall presents Board members Diana Snider and Michelle Traynor with the keys to their new van.
    Genesee County is the home of Flint, MI, about 60 miles north of Detroit. This marks the 5th Affiliate started in the state of Michigan. The need for the program is well-illustrated by Flint’s perpetual appearance on multiple lists of the most troubled cities in America. As shelter providers in Genesee County note, at any given time, Flint’s homeless population is about 3,000, yet there are less than 200 beds available.
