FLINT, MI, APRIL 28, 2022 - This April, Family Promise of Genesee County will participate with Family Promise and Affiliates across the country in Family Promise Giving Day, a one-day event to raise awareness of Family Promise and the crisis of family homelessness in Genesee County and the U.S.


"I never tire of talking about Family Promise, with each opportunity I have to speak with someone new, to create awareness about the trauma of family homelessness, it renews my own excitement and passion of helping families with a hand-up out of their situation," says Development Director Nicole Hoste-Breslin. "We do things differently then other shelters, we are passionate helping families get the skills they need and we coach them along the way so they are successful."




Family Promise envisions a nation in which every family has a home, a livelihood, and the chance to build a better future. What began as a local initiative in Summit, NJ, has become a national movement that involves 200,000 volunteers and serves more than 90,000 family members each year. Family Promise will change the future for 1 million children by 2030.


Join Family Promise of Genesee County on April 28! For more information about Family Promise Giving Day, please visit https://www.fpgives.org/organizations/family-promise-of-genesee-county.

Flint, MI, MARCH 22 – This March, Family Promise of Genesee County will celebrate its eighth year helping families in our community. FPGCs 'birthday' is just one day apart from Executive Director, Tiffani Ferrier-Wharry's birthday so it was fitting to have the event celebrate both dates. They have invited their volunteers, advocates, and faithful supporters to participate in a Birthday Drive-By. This one-day online and in-person event is to designed to raise funds to "drive" homelessness out of Genesee County.


“We haven't been able to gather in so long - our rotational shelter program is still on pause and we miss not seeing our volunteers! We are hoping to raise $5,000 - to put toward our Stabilization programs," says Development Director Nicole Hoste-Breslin. "Last year we served 547 children in 150 families in all of Genesee County. It is outstanding how far we can make money stretch, even in this crazy economy."


Family Promise of Genesee County is focused on ending homelessness...one family at a time.

If you are a reporter with questions about the Birthday Drive By, please reach out to Tiffani Ferrier-Wharry at info@familypromiseofgc.org.
