Family Promise – April 7th-14th

“Waukesha is one of the most affluent counties in the state and yet, we are getting calls every day.  We call it “hidden homelessness” because these families aren’t living under bridges or on the street like in some communities.  They are sleeping on a friend’s couch and when that option is used up, they are living in a car.”

Words of our Executive Director of Family Promise of Waukesha County, David Tennyck.

Family Promise was featured on the Today Show March 21st. Here’s a link to the segment:
