Journal Reflections of a Former Teen Guest of FPL

Journal Reflections of a Former Teen Guest of FPL

December 25, 2012

This is probably one of the worst Christmas’ ever.  Homeless and don’t have a place to stay.  I hate it so much.  Haven’t had a nice good home cooked meal for about a month.  Eating out is starting to get boring, McDonald’s double cheese burgers are starting to look and get sloppy and nastier by the minute.  I just am ready for our own crib.  This staying with family of friends’ thing isn’t really my cup of tea.  I’m just ready for something new.

Attending the national conference for Family Promise on the west coast, I take a needed break to walk along the water. I find myself on a path leading to the ocean as a man approaches me and I smile immediately at his apparent mode of transportation (more…)

Call It Beautiful by Shaun LePage

Some say, “Beauty is in the eye of the beholder.” I get that. I won’t dispute it. But, beauty is also in the eye of the one with understanding. Looking at Family Promise from the outside, you might think it’s just another service provider. Just a program. But I’ve had the chance over the past several months to take a closer look. I’ve discovered something I didn’t see at first: Beauty. (more…)

It’s the Thing that is Different Around Here  by Katherine Dinsdale, Board Member

It’s the thing that’s different around here. It’s what helps grease the wheels and turn the cranks. It butters the bread and floats the boats, it brings tears and cheers and dollars and sense.  It’s relationship. (more…)

Happy New Year!

One of my favorite New Year’s Eve Family Promise of Lawrence stories is from 5 years ago.  One of the coordinators at First Baptist Church sent me an email about 12:30 about her experience hosting that night.

Home for Christmas

Home for Christmas

One of the “artificial” goals for many families in Rotation and Program 515 is to have their own place by the holidays.  Year after year, we see a surge of families meeting that goal and getting into their home by Thanksgiving, or by Christmas, or before an anticipated milestone birthday.  This year is no exception.  (more…)

Eye Contact

Eye Contact

Eye contact is a big deal.

And when it happens at Family Promise, we rejoice. Often the child of a weary new guest won’t meet our gaze. She clings to her mom. She turns her face away.   Looking up, interacting with others, is too risky.  Don’t engage.  It might hurt again.

Then, often, something magical happens. (more…)

Thank you Lord for our network of caring, compassionate people

It is that time of year again already!  Time that we pause from our busy schedules, our work, school, activities, and our taxi service for our kids.  We can stop, give thanks and reflect on all that is good and perfect in our world.

In the office at FPL, we have a Thanksgiving journal.  (more…)

How big is the situation of family homelessness in Douglas County?

Family Promise of Lawrence receives an average of 300 calls from separate families inquiring about our services annually.  The average family size is 4, so that represents about 1200 people who are in a difficult situation and are exploring options for their family annually.  More than 50% of the people we serve annually are under the age of 5.
