A New Beginning

“Ever since my son was born, we’ve been homeless; moving from friend-to-friend, house-to house.  And now, my son has his very own place to call home.” 

During their stay with us, Stacy was able to accomplish a great deal for herself and her infant son, Ryder.  She identified realistic short and long-term goals and consistently communicated and worked with her case manager, Keely. Her short-term goals included: saving money, getting a car, maintaining employment, retaining child care for Ryder, and finding and procuring an apartment. We are happy to share that Stacy achieved every one of these goals.  By maintaining employment with her job at a law office and utilizing all the resources Family Promise extended to her and her son, Stacy was able to develop the habit of saving money.  In fact, she saved most of her income during her time at Family Promise. With her hard-earned savings, Stacy was able to reach a personal goal of hers, that being – becoming independent and self-sufficient.  This was made a reality by her acquiring and moving into her own apartment.  All of us here at Family Promise are joyful for and proud of Stacy. She shared with us that she will soon begin working on one of her long-term goals. That being, to become a para-legal. We are excited that we will not be saying goodbye, as we will be following-up with, and working with Stacy in Family Promise’s newly implemented “After-Care Program”.
