One in 16 children in the U.S. experiences homelessness by the first grade. They and their families can be found sleeping in motel rooms, with friends, or even in their cars. Children and teens who face homelessness suffer in other ways, as well. They’re more likely to drop out of school, repeat a grade, suffer from depression, and attempt suicide.

Recently, two teens in our program shared what it felt like in their life before Family Promise staying with family and friends.  One explained that she always felt "jumpy" inside.  The other shared that she felt constant anxiety.  Some of those feelings came from not knowing how long they would be staying or how long their "hosts" would let them stay.  Some came from not knowing whose rules to follow, their parents or their hosts.  You can only imagine how hard it would be not having a place to call your own or a place were you just felt safe....safe to be a kid.

Your donation will assist families right here in OUR COMMUNITY transition from homelessness to sustainable independence through the Family Promise program.
