A Place to Call Home: "I had been praying for a place to call home. All I was asking for is a roof and a place to lay my head. What I received was so much more! Quite overwhelming actually! Not to have that daily question where am I going to live? The joy and happiness I felt when I moved into a fully furnished HOME is indescribable, I was almost giddy ... My mental, physical and spiritual well-being was greatly improved. My personal relation-ship with Jesus Christ has been enriched, seeing a modern-day miracle happen."
With a shortfall of affordable housing in our community, there's a real need to supply permanent housing for families at risk of becoming homeless. For as little as $7,600, Family Promise-Partners in Housing is restoring manufactured homes so they become affordable places where families can be proud to live. When a family shows fiscal responsibility by consistently paying their rent and utilities, they receive the title to their home. This opportunity takes a family out of homelessness into homeownership in as little as six months.

There’s nothing like seeing the joy on a child’s face when they move into a home and realize they won’t have to change schools and make new friends again. Homeownership gives parents peace of mind knowing their children will grow up in a stable, safe and healthy home.
There are so many ways for you, your family, your church and your organization to help families through Family Promise-Partners in Housing. We depend on the generosity of volunteers and donors to keep our mission alive. Whatever way you can help, big or small, makes a difference in the lives of the children and parents we help.
To help families facing a housing crisis, please consider making a financial gift to Family Promise.
