On Tuesday, September 6th, Family Promise Executive Director, Doug Morris and Volunteer Coordinator, Elpidia Paniagua attended the Statewide Employee Charitable Contribution Kickoff at Texas Tech University.  The SECC Annual Giving Campaign afforded Texas Tech employees the opportunity to visit with nonprofit agencies, participate in on-site service projects and make a pledge to their charity of choice!

In the past, Family Promise has received funds from the SECC Campaign.  It is only with the continued help of caring individuals from the community and organizations such as TTU and SECC that we are able to provide temporary shelter and supportive services to homeless families experiencing one of the most difficult times of their lives.  In 2015, 63 individuals transitioned from homelessness to permanent housing

A huge thanks to TTU President, Dr. Lawrence Schovanec for his inspiring remarks and for taking time from his busy schedule to meet Doug and Elpidia and even pose for a picture!

Spring Luncheon 2016

On Thursday May 12th, Family Promise of Lubbock hosted its Spring Luncheon of 2016 at Second Baptist Church. This event allowed us to showcase some of the reasons Family Promise never stops fighting to end homelessness. Members of our families told their story of struggle and perseverance. One of our best resources, our volunteers, also shared why they feel it is important to give back.

Along with all of those who were in attendance, we would like to thank our volunteers, caterers, Board of Directors, and our families. We would also like to thank Madeline Frost for taking pictures during the event. Stay tuned for more events and news on Family Promise of Lubbock. The fight to end homelessness is not over, but with your help, we are headed in the right direction!
