Our efforts in ending homelessness for children and their families is not yet finished, and your support is needed.
Every day of every week throughout the year, mothers and fathers are striving to provide for their children. But on any given night in California, 25,000 families will be homeless and wondering where their next meal will come from or where they will be able to sleep that evening.
This does not include singles and the chronically homeless. Families are the fastest growing segment of the homeless population. Over 40% of the U.S. homeless population are families with children. One out of every 50 children, or 1.5 million children, are homeless.
Children experiencing homelessness have increased health problems, increased mental problems, struggle in school, and have an estimated graduation rate below 25%.
Family Promise was opened to help eliminate the growing population of homeless families. Shelters fill up quickly and most segregate by age and gender. Family Promise is unique in that we keep the family together during this process. No parent wants to split up their family.
For just $1 a day, your contributions will allow us to provide shelter, food, and case management for our situationally-homeless families.
