Updated: Feb 21
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.
