On December 15th, Family Promise of the Verdugos hosted a Holiday Party for all FPV Graduates. We had nearly 20 former homeless families attend the party. Families including the Prados, the Mezas, the Haynes, the Lams, and so many more joined us for food, fellowship, and gift exchanging. It was an incredible sight to see how the families are thriving, sharing stories about what they are doing now and reminiscing their experiences in the shelter. A special thank you to the Deacons from Glendale Presbyterian Church who made a donation that helped pull this event together.
The holidays are a great time to get together with your loved ones and celebrate so much. At times, though, the holidays can be difficult for families living in a shelter, on the streets, or in their vehicles. At Family Promise, we work hard to make certain every parent and child is taken care of during the holiday season. Due to the loving and giving organizations including Providence Saint Joseph Medical Center, Nickelodeon Animation Studios, Jet Aviation, and James Berner, all of the families living in all of our programs were adopted. Thank you to all of you!
