March 26, 2019 - Over 60 individuals turned out in support of the Family Promise Graduation Celebration which honored five families who recently completed the program.
During their stay at Family Promise these graduates were provided with temporary housing, transportation, child care, life-skills training and many supportive services. They acquired employment and have secured their own housing, re-entering society as contributing members.
Many individuals and businesses came together to make this celebration a success. A huge thanks to Quaker Avenue Church of Christ for their thoughtful and generous gifts of bibles; Lake Ridge United Methodist Church for donating the inspirational home décor, picture frames and gift cards; our food sponsor, Spanky’s for providing mouth-watering club sandwiches, Emily Hill for donating delicious cakes for the event, Treva Kemp and Doug and Marie Hale for their support and generous donation of food products. A huge thanks to everyone who attended and helped make the graduation celebration extra special for these families.
Please join us in congratulating our graduates, Stacy, Brenda, Alex, Emily, Tereka, whose courageous efforts has led them to achieving stable housing and self-sufficiency.
