Wa shared a meal together.

We voted

and the winner is:  Family Promise!

Family Promise works with local congregations to provide emergency shelter and housing rehabilitation to homeless families. Families are sheltered with volunteer churches, and work with our case managers to achieve housing, employment and financial independence. Homelessness is an immediate and ongoing problem in our community. Few organizations, however, take a holistic approach to families, keeping all members together while working to quickly move them towards stable housing and employment. Our organization has achieved a 90% success rate, and the average stay in the program is less than 120 days. The $500 microgrant funding will be used to fund housing for our families and programs aimed to help them achieve employment and housing stabilization.
