This year in America, more than 2.5 million children will experience homelessness
We are Family Promise
Transforming the lives of families experiencing homelessness, because every child deserves a home.
Thank you to Riverside Elks Lodge #643 for your generous donation of $5,000. These funds will be used towards fulfilling our match goal for the Clayton Future Begins at Home - Landlord Grant recently awarded. These funds are to be used for our new landlord engagement program.
A Message From Our Executive Director
She was living in a car with a friend and her children! An argument separated the friends, and she was now without housing, living in a public park, and sleeping in the public restroom with her kids. After a few days, she received help from a park ranger with transportation to a Riverside hotel.
Now paying $80/night, she calls for assistance for long-term housing assistance.
This single mom could afford to pay for the housing, except that she needed assistance with child care if she were likely to enter the workforce and support her family with accommodations and food.
Imagine the circumstance of a mom in this dire situation. And yet, she didn't give up hope. I consider this an occurrence that happens more frequently than one would think.
The City of Riverside and the County are affordable housing 'challenged.'
Consider a gift that supports Family Promise of Riverside's initiative of providing housing solutions. Consider what your $50/month would do with alleviating the challenges that families are facing in our community.
The Rest of the Story
Because of your assistance, Family Promise of Riverside was able to connect this mom with County resources. She is now getting help with a hotel voucher and will plan to coordinate with the County for the resources required to get her back into the workforce.
See what $50 can do, and join Family Promise of Riverside. Together we can change the plight of family homelessness.
