The Mobile Rundown 2020 - Page 13

Story and Mission H omelessness affects hundreds of families in Mobile County each year. Family Promise of Coastal Alabama is the place where they are warmly welcomed by friends and neighbors from the community who offer the help they need to get back on their feet. Every day of the year, families are getting stronger. Congregations share their space for sleeping. Volunteers prepare and serve meals. During the day, families utilize a safe day center where parents work with an experienced case manager to make a plan to tackle the obstacles in their paths. We offer transportation to school, work, and vital appointments, educational services, budgeting and parenting skills classes. In the end, about 80% of families in the program exit into stable housing. And the best part is they never had to be apart from one another when they needed each other the most. Do Some Good We are looking for new partners to host families at night and partners who might not be able to host but would support those who can. We need volunteers for all kinds of activities!
