At Carter Mario Law Firm, they have been fighting for Connecticut injury victims for 30 years. But their commitment to the community doesn’t stop in the courtroom. Their CarterCares program serves as a way for their attorneys and staff to reach out and make a difference in the lives of their neighbors. This generous donation will certainly make a difference for the families we serve at Family Promise!

We are so grateful to our friends at Carter Mario Law Firm and to everyone that cast their vote for us!

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:
