United Way is granting a two-year, $50,000 award to support and expand the Family Promise of Lincoln County’s “Strengthening Families” program.
The “Breaking the Cycle of Childhood Poverty” (BCCP) funding cycle in Lincoln County supports long-term preventative work to stop inter-generational poverty by creating cycles of family stability.
BCCP’s goals are greater school readiness, supporting students during school transitions, workforce readiness for teens, and financial literacy for families.
Elizabeth Reyes, Executive Director of FPLC said, “The funding that United Way grants to Family Promise makes it possible for us to offer Life Skills, Financial Literacy, Parenting, Second Chance Renters and many other classes that empower families within our community”
