Family Promise of Gallatin Valley Celebrating Serving 100 Homeless Families!
On Thursday, May 23rd from 5:30-7:30pm at the Baxter Hotel Ballroom, Family Promise of Gallatin Valley will be celebrating serving 100 Family Promise families consisting of 336 people including 157 adults and 179 children.
Guests will enjoy live music by Milton Menasco, light appetizers by Off the Eatin’ Path and drinks. This is a great opportunity for supporters of Family Promise to catch up with graduated Family Promise families, volunteers and staff.
Family Promise has over an 80% success rate of families graduating the program with stable housing, employment and childcare. Family Promise can host up to four families or twelve people for an average of 90 days at a time. In the evenings, Family Promise guests stay overnight at local congregations where volunteers provide home cooked meals and overnight accommodations for the families. During the day, the homeless families go to a Family Day Center and receive full time case management and learn life skills such as parenting, budgeting and interviewing skills.
“At Family Promise, we believe in celebrating all of the successes of our families, large or small. This is a celebration of all the hard work our families have dedicated to regaining their independence. Additionally, this is a recognition of all the time, energy and love our 1,500 volunteers have invested into our families over the years,” said Bridget Pitman, Family Promise Volunteer Director.
The event is welcome to all Family Promise supporters, friends and family.
Past Family Promise guest Cami said, “Family Promise is a blessing and continues to touch the hearts and lives of many. I cannot thank them enough for showing me love, inspiring me, and giving me wings to fly! I went from homeless to being a homeowner! I am forever grateful.”
