What's Happening


Due to Governor Whitmer’s order to shelter in place, Family Promise will be closing the Day Center today for at least the next 3 weeks.

Many of you have reached out, and asked how can you help during this time. Thank you! We are experiencing an increase in families asking for help due to COVID-19. Many families, who were staying in double up situations, are now being asked to leave. As such, these families are in extreme crisis. As we pivot to meet the increased demand for family shelter, here are the best ways to help:

Financial gifts will be used to support hotels for families, transportation, day care needs, and food: https://www.familypromisegr.org/how-you-can-help/donate/

Please note we are still ensuring all of our families have basic needs during this time period.

We appreciate your help as we work to be a good community partner and stop the spread of COVID-19! Communication is moving at a rapid speed. If you have any questions, please feel free to email me directly.

Stay healthy!
