Mark your calendars for June 17, when Family Promise of Lincoln County invites the community to join in celebration of serving families experiencing homelessness for the past five years.
The organization has helped families get back on their feet and into their own permanent housing through working with various churches and community volunteers. Family Promise of Lincoln County helps with shelter, meals and comprehensive assistance to homeless and low income families with children achieve sustainable, independent living.
The event will be held at the Beach Club Event Center from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. Church members, volunteers, past families and the community are welcome. Finger foods and beverages will be served.
Volunteers, churches and community donors and sponsors will be thanked for helping the organization accomplish its goals again this year. Graduated families will be on hand to reconnect with everyone and share their success stories. Previous President and Executive Director, Hanna Connett will be returning for the celebration as well.
“We hope volunteers and other members of the community will join us to hear what we do and what is happening at Family Promise,” Elizabeth Reyes, Executive Director of Family Promise said. “It takes the whole community to make our program successful so we want to share how our families are doing and what we have accomplished and to say thank you to everyone.”
Since June of 2014, Family Promise of Lincoln County has been about shelter and support for homeless families with children. The board and staff are excited to be in operation and able to be a refuge to families in need.
“We are grateful for the support of the community," Sue Anerson, president of Family Promise said. "We could not have gotten here without it. We need your support now more than ever, to enable us to continue serving the families.”
