Just five months ago, Jerry’s Promise opened its doors to its first three residents. Since that day, the families have worked closely with our staff on securing employment, making certain that their children are getting the education they need, and saving income to transition into permanent housing. And, this past July 31st, we saw our first family move out of Jerry’s Promise: the McDade family increased their income by securing new opportunities at work in the form of a promotion. With the increase in wages, the family has been able to secure an apartment on their own this month. A program that was meant to give families up to 12 months was able to transition this family to stability within 5 months. Congratulations to the McDade family!
