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!
