I would like to tell you about my experience with Family Promise. A co-worker told me about the organization. I called and set an appointment to discuss my situation to see if I qualified for the program.

This fall we opened up a new role at FPL, which we call, Peer Advocates. It is something that has always happened organically at the Day Center. Graduates are always in and out of the Day Center, visiting, having some coffee, encouraging the current families enrolled in programming. So we decided to formalize it!

Our mission statement is so simple-we help homeless families with children achieve and maintain permanent housing. It seems straightforward.
The Day House has been alive lately. Lots of littles are darting in and out of the office, arguing over toys, greeting everyone who comes in the door. Parents are trying to wrangle kids, get them out the door, make them share, get them bathed or keep them out of the bathroom.
