Family Promise was approved for a $12k grant offered through the Community Foundation of the Verdugos. This grant will enable Family Promise to purchase a pick up truck that will be utilized to transport furniture and other essential household items for families that we have been able to place into housing. This new addition allows us to expand our services and give families items needed to live a comfortable and healthy lifestyle. As you may know when a family moves back into an apartment unit upon exiting our program the families do not have essential items such as a bed or dining table. And, with this pick up truck we can collect donated items and transport them to households so family members are not sleeping on the floor of their new home. Special thanks to the Board of Directors and Edna Karinski from the Community Foundation of the Verdugos for their commitment to our community, Family Promise and the families experiencing homelessness.
