Director’s Message

my-picThank you for taking the time to learn more about Family Promise of Montgomery County. As always, we would not be able to do anything without the generosity of the community and support of our volunteers – and we will never be able to thank you enough!

This year we have focused on defining services and identifying programs that are more efficient and effective for our families and applicants. We want to help donors and supporters understand our goals, our services, and what our outcomes will be. In this way, we can assure you that your investments are going towards actual change!

Family Promise of Montgomery County is an organization that serves the needs of homeless families with children. Home-to-Home is our 90-day program that serves up to four families at one time and an average of 24 families a year. Home-to-Home focuses on immediate stabilization, empowerment and education, and helps transition families into living on their own. The Home-to-Home program is sustained by our network of churches, partnerships with local organizations and professionals who instruct our life skills classes, and the in-kind donations which help our families move into their new home. Operation KAR-GO is our transportation assistance program which includes any transportation need a Family Promise family has and includes our Donated Vehicle Program. The ROC program (Reaching Our Children) is very special to us because we want to ensure none of our children are heavily impacted by the crisis of being homeless. By doing so, we want you to know that we are working to end generational homelessness one child at a time!

We have learned that the needs in our community are vast and though an applicant may not be a fit for our organization; we can still help. Through our Support & Outreach (S&O) program we have a Resource Specialist who will assist callers and help them find the right service for their need.

We hope you understand how hard we are working hard to do our part, but nothing can be done without your continued support. Please join us to make real change happen!

Thank you!
