Family Promise’s Fifth Birthday!

In early November 2014, Family Promise of Waukesha County opened its doors to our first guest family.  We have been operating 24/7 ever since that cold November morning and our fifth birthday is fast approaching!  By the time November rolls around, we’ll have taken in over 100 local homeless families with children.  Fifty families will have been placed in their own fully furnished apartment and more than ninety percent of our placed families will have been able to keep their homes.  This great success is due to our incredible volunteers, donors, and employees who have contributed thousands upon thousands of meals, hours, and donations of cash, supplies and furniture.

Anyone interested in celebrating with us or wanting to learn more about the program is welcome to stop by.  There will be tasty refreshments, lively conversation and several information stations summarizing where we’ve been, how we got there and where we’re going.
