A Community Response to Family Homelessness

Lee & Ashley’s Story

Lee and her grand-niece, Ashley, moved into the program in May of 2012. Lee was struggling to pay off bills and become financially stable. She stayed in the program until September when she was able to move into a transitional housing program to continue toward success. Lee has recently moved into permanent housing with Ashley. The two are doing well and remember their time at Family Promise fondly. They come back to visit regularly, and staff continue to provide support when needed. Lee said of the program, “I just wish blessings on this program! It truly is of God. There are so many blessings here that I just pray for more and more blessings in the future.”

The program is just wonderful. It’s really great to be on my own now, but in some ways, I kinda miss it. They’re such great people, all the volunteers. I really miss them. It’s like they’ve become a part of my family.
