During our 2018 calendar year Family Promise of the Verdugos amplified its program services beyond the 90-day shelter. Today our programming includes three types of Rapid Rehousing Programs i.e. Glendale Continuum of Care Rapid Rehousing, California Emergency Solutions and Housing Rapid Rehousing and Rapid Rehousing funded by the City of Burbank Community Development Block Grant. The Rapid Rehousing programs will generate an increase of services offered to a total of 25 homeless families per year.
In addition, we implemented a Homeless Prevention program which provides rental assistance and security deposits for families trying to stay in housing. And, in March 2019 we opened our new Transitional Housing program in the city of Burbank for 3 families per year.
With all said we have doubled the total number of families served on a yearly basis to 50 families. With the large number of families being offered services we have had to increase staffing, program supplies, transportation services to continue to mobilize these families to become self-sufficient. We need YOUR HELP to keep up with the expansion of services.
Please consider making a donation to Family Promise of the Verdugos through our new Power of Community campaign. We are soliciting one donor each month to contribute at minimum $1,000 to assist with the increase in expenses. In return, FPV will highlight our partnership via e-newsletters, social media, website and at our annual Donor Appreciation event.

We would like to give a special THANK YOU to Logix Federal Credit Union for being our inaugural Power of Community partner for the month of July 2019!
Your donation will help give families a second chance at life. Parents will get the support needed to attain employment and to be able to provide for their children. Children will be back in school and living a healthy lifestyle. 96% of our families last year were able to move back into an apartment unit because of your support and the work of our staff. Consider making a donation so that no child has to sleep in a car or on the streets.
All donations are tax-deductible. For answers to your questions contact our Executive Director at Albert@FamilyPromiseVerdugos.org
