What’s the best gift you’ve ever received?

Amanda and Maverick at Family PromiseThe best gift Amanda ever received was her son, Maverick, and her ability to give him a bright future.

Amanda and her young son moved in and out of shelters before finding Family Promise. Although employed, a lack of reliable transportation made it difficult for Amanda to balance work, parenting, and her efforts to achieve lasting stability. Family Promise helped her find a new job, housing, and even a car.

When she saw that furthering her education would provide greater opportunities, Family Promise helped her navigate those steps, too. Now raising a son, working, and attending college, Amanda looks forward to a future she couldn’t have envisioned before Family Promise.
