2020 Sleep Out

Once again our friends at UCC Newington are holding their annual Youth Sleep-Out for the Homeless that supports FPCCT.

On February 7, 2020, Youth in grades 6-12 will take turns sleeping outside overnight in cardboard boxes to raise awareness of family homelessness in Connecticut. They’ll collect donations from those who support their efforts, and proceeds will benefit Family Promise of Central Connecticut.

To donate click the PayPal logo below. General donations are welcome; donors supporting a particular teen should indicate the participant’s name in the “note” field.

2019 Giving Tuesday

After Black Friday comes Giving Tuesday! On Tuesday, December 3, 2019 Family Promise of Central Connecticut has the chance to get double the donations through Facebook!

Facebook’s match for GivingTuesday 2019 begins at 8:00 AM Eastern Time (5:00 AM Pacific Time) on Tuesday, December 3, 2019.

Donations are matched dollar for dollar on a first-come, first-served basis until $7,000,000 in eligible donations are made on Facebook.

Facebook will match up to a total of $100,000 per nonprofit organization.

Each donor can have up to $20,000 in eligible donations matched on GivingTuesday.

Facebook manages their own payment platform called Network for Good. They cover processing fees so that when we get donations from our supporters on Facebook 100% of your donation goes right to us to aid homeless children and their families.

Donation from the Archbishop’s Annual Appeal

Family Promise of Central Connecticut just received a very generous donation from the Archdiocese of Hartford through its Vicariate Outreach Program. The funding will help us continue to aid homeless families with children in the greater Hartford area.

Since 1981, the Archbishop’s Annual Appeal has been able to assist tens of thousands of people – regardless of race, religion, or color – across the Archdiocese of Hartford with health care, education, housing, emergency expenses and in several other ways. It is through the Archbishop’s Annual Appeal Vicariate Outreach Program and the generosity of its donors that the Appeal is able to assist a wide array of community-based charities, just like Family Promise of Central CT.

We are so grateful for the continued support of the Archoicese of Hartford. With donations like this one we are able to fulfill our mission of ending homelessness one family at a time!

Family Promise Giving Day 2019

 

Did you know that one out of every five people who experiences homelessness is a child?  Or, that families with children make up nearly 35% of the people in this country who are experiencing homelessness?  Family homelessness is a national problem that Family Promise addresses through its 200+ Affiliates and 200,000 volunteers.

The week of October 20-27, 2019 we celebrate our Affiliates, volunteers and families with Family Promise Week.  Our local Affiliate, Family Promise of Central CT is one of 200 + programs across the country uniting the faith community to help children and their families who are homeless.  Family Promise Week raises awareness about the issue of homelessness and celebrate the service of our congregation and others to serve our brothers and sisters in need.

Giving Day is October 25th! This is an opportunity to raise vital funds for FPCCT. Please share this link with your family and friends:
