Family Promise of Monroe County Receives Grant from Clayton® and Family Promise National to Support Families in Monroe & Jackson Counties 

--  A Future Begins at Home grant program helps families facing homelessness remain in their homes and regain stability --

Sparta, WI -- Family Promise of Monroe County was recently awarded a $20,000.00 grant from Clayton and Family Promise National that will ensure families in Monroe and Jackson Counties receive the support they need to remain safely housed. 

The grant is a portion of the $1.3 million dollars that Clayton and Family Promise National are dispersing to the Family Promise network nationwide. The funds are a result of the recently announced partnership extension between Family Promise and Clayton. A Future Begins at Home, the program that arose from the collaboration focuses on helping families who face homelessness remain in their homes and quickly regain stability. Since its inception in 2019, A Future Begins at Home has catalyzed millions in additional funding, resulting in more than 25,000 families served.

“The money from FP National and Clayton Homes will provide much-needed relief and bolster the success of our prevention programs in Monroe & Jackson Counties.”

In addition to the grant program, Clayton has donated 16 homes to the Family Promise network since 2019. These homes are used primarily as transitional housing for families working with Family Promise. The homes allow families to stay together and regain stability as they work to find a new home.
