HOW YOU CAN HELP
Family Promise of Lincoln County is able to provide this outreach and support for struggling families only with the help and support from our community and community partners. Our volunteers are crucial and are as important as our financial donors. The Family Promise model costs 1/3 a traditional shelter program because of its volunteer base and partnerships with the faith community which provides the overnight shelter.
This means that for every $1 contributed we are able to leverage it into $3.
Additional ways you can help is INCREASE awareness of the problem of child homelessness. Talk about the need and then talk about Family Promise and our program to assist families in obtaining sustainable independent living. Partner with a congregation. If you don't belong to one, find your neighborhood congregation, ask them if they are a "host" congregation for Family Promise, and if they are offer to volunteer. If they are not, tell them about us.
In order for this program to succeed, we need YOUR help. Together we can make this program a reality.
