Preventing families from becoming homeless in the first place with Shelter Diversion, Rental Assistance and Transportation programs.
With more than 40% of Americans only a $400 expense away from financial distress, the threat of crisis looms closely for too many families. Preventing families from spiraling into homelessness is an essential part of the Family Promise mission.
Promise of Home’s mission is to assist families at risk of losing their housing with community resource navigation; rental, move-in deposit, or utilities assistance; and landlord mediation to keep families housed.
Family Promise National partner Help Us Move In (HUMI) has provided a challenge-match grant of $10,000, which will be paid to our Affiliate once we raise $10,000 locally.
This first $20,000 will enable us to begin our work to keep families from falling into the cycle of housing instability that can devastate families and alter the course of children’s lives. We’ll ask the community to match that $20,000 as well, to ensure we have adequate resources to answer the extraordinary needs of this time.
