An Exciting New Chapter!

Fifteen years ago, when Lawrence Family Promise was establishing itself in Douglas County, we made an important promise to do all we could to help the most vulnerable children and families in this community. We are proud of the work we  have done as an organization and of our families who have successfully gone through our programing.  

Lawrence Family Promise has taken a significant step forward by acquiring 200 Mt. Hope Court.. The decision to transform 200 Mt. Hope Court into a shelter for children and families reflects Family Promise’s unwavering commitment to serving those in need.

The shelter will serve as more than just a temporary residence; it will be a place of refuge and empowerment. Families staying at the shelter will receive not only essential amenities but also access to comprehensive support services aimed at addressing their specific needs. From Case Management to educational and employment assistance, Family Promise is committed to equipping families with the tools they need to regain stability and independence.

However, Family Promise cannot do this alone. Community involvement and support are vital to our growth and success.. Volunteers play a crucial role in providing additional assistance and creating a sense of belonging for families staying at the shelter. Whether it’s bringing meals, offering companionship, or organizing activities for children, every act of kindness contributes to making the shelter a warm and welcoming place for families in transition.

Moreover, community support extends beyond volunteering. Financial contributions, in-kind donations, and spreading awareness about Family Promise’s mission are all ways individuals and businesses can contribute to the cause. By rallying together as a community, we can make a meaningful difference in the lives of families experiencing homelessness.

As we look ahead, let us celebrate this milestone achievement while recognizing the work that lies ahead. The transformation of 200 Mt. Hope Court into a shelter for children and families is a testament to the power of compassion and collective action. Together, we can build a community where every family has a place to call home and the support they need to thrive.
