Peggy chose to tell her own experience with Family Promise. She was very hesitant to ask for help. She had been at the same great job for 5 years and continues to work there. She’s always worked very hard to provide for her children and makes good money where she is. This story reflects all too often the same rhetoric that we hear from many families that come to us. We are happy that we could be there for her family and hope to help many others in a similar situation. We could not be prouder to share what she wrote about us.
“Me and my 9-year-old daughter became homeless due to some financial problems. We stayed in a motel for a month which I paid for out of pocket. We could not afford to do it anymore. I did not know of resources to contact until I talked to a co-worker and he told me about the program for Family Promise. So, we entered the program which is a wonderful program. They help out as much as they can and as quickly as possible to help us get out of the program and into a place of our own. The volunteers in the program are awesome as well. Me and my daughter are very grateful for everyone who has helped us out in this trying time. We have been in the program for just two weeks and are now going to be moving into our own place. I encourage anyone who is in the same situation as us to reach out and get help. It is so worth it. I don’t know where me and my daughter would have went without this program. It truly is amazing.
We would like to thank everyone who has been there helping us through this trying journey. Thank you so much for everything you all have done for us. We really appreciate everything and are very grateful for this wonderful program.
