Family Promise helps homeless and low-income families become financially stable, secure long-term housing and live independently. The organization’s new day center, at 10695 Ford Ave., is open weekdays from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. On site, an Interfaith Hospitality Network director and a social worker provide case-management services. Members of families who are living in temporary housing — often provided by area host churches — may use the center, and Family Promise helps by providing transportation to and from the facility.
Director Candice Fife said now that the facility is running, it must be maintained. In addition, donations are needed to help care for and feed the families who turn to the organization in times of need.
Family Promise is also looking to add to its network of churches that host families for a week at a time. Churches serve the families dinner each night and give them places to sleep, with Family Promise providing the beds.
Family Promise of Bryan County began in October 2013 when concerned residents assembled to discuss establishing an affiliate of the national non-profit. The local affiliate collaborates with area churches and social services agencies to help families become financially stable and independent by providing food, shelter, and support for homeless families, as well as advice and advocacy for at-risk families to prevent their becoming homeless.
