A Community Response to Family Homelessness

Desiree’s Story

Desiree moved into the program in 2012 with her son, Warren. She also had a baby bump. While in the program, William joined the family. Both boys were precious and happy. Desiree learned parenting skills and worked on employment goals. Because of being pregnant and having Warren, Desiree wasn’t able to become employed while in the program. She moved into transitional housing where she became employed and was attending the school. Desiree said, “I’ll do anything I can do to help out the program after what you all did for me! Thank you so much – we couldn’t have turned our lives around without Family Promise!”

There’s a lot of nice people in the world – all the volunteers – they didn’t have to be here to help us, but they helped anyway.
