The week of Sunday, October 21 through Sunday, October 28, has been designated Family Promise Week and will be celebrated nationwide. Family Promise Week will bring attention to the crisis of family homelessness and the efforts to address it in communities across the country.
We also believe that Family Promise Week is the perfect occasion to increase awareness of the issue of family homelessness. During the week, we hope that our supporters will give thought to the fact that children and their families make up nearly 35% of all people who are homeless, and that children themselves represent one out of every five homeless people.
In recognition of national Family Promise week, FPCCT is taking the opportunity to “Stock Up for the Winter.” Please download the flyer here: Stocking Up for the Winter. We will also be posting special content on our social media accounts about our volunteers, sponsors, and community partners!
As always, we are thankful to all of our volunteers and supporters! A volunteer bringing in a lasagna or a youth group playing board games with homeless children is not just local outreach, it is part of a national movement. Family Promise Week unites our communities in the belief that we can and will end family homelessness.
