What’s the Best Gift You’ve Ever Received? | Marcus

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

The best gift Marcus and his family received was the car Family Promise secured for them.

Marcus and his parents lived in a motel for six months before finding Family Promise. His parents were employed, but most of their paychecks went to motel bills.

Family Promise kept the family together and gave them budgeting strategies to increase their savings while in the shelter program. And by securing a car for the family, Family Promise ensured Marcus’ school studies were uninterrupted and his parents could get to work.

Today the family is in their own home, Marcus’ parents have a steady income, and Marcus is a successful high school student and plays violin in a local orchestra.

Marcus’ 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 Marcus’ with the tools and resources to regain stability and achieve lasting independence. Please give a family battling homelessness the gift of hope and home!
