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

The best gift Ma’lia has given is paying it forward by feeding others who have lost their homes.

A single mother of three, Ma’lia worked 17 hours a day, but when a health crisis put her son in the hospital she had to take leave from work without pay, ultimately resulting in the loss of her home. Family Promise assisted the family with shelter, childcare, school issues, and transportation expenses and helped her budget to build her savings. Family Promise also helped them find housing and secured a car for Ma’lia to ease the stress of commuting and getting to medical appointments. Having seen how one person can make a difference, the family now gives back by volunteering at a soup kitchen every week.

Ma’lia’s story is one of the thousands that begins at Family Promise each year. Every story is a gift, and these gifts are made possible by people like you. Your support provides families like Ma’lia’s with the tools and resources to regain stability and achieve lasting independence. Please give a family battling homelessness the gift of hope and home!
