girl in parking garage As we continue to cope with the ever-changing environment that COVID-19 has led to, one thing that remains constant is the support our families experiencing homelessness need. In response to this pandemic, the national Family Promise team has scheduled a week-long Emergency Coronavirus Relief Fundraiser -Unfortunately, homelessness is not suspended; our services are still critically needed. We applaud communities that have taken steps to avert potential new cases of homelessness through assistance programs and eviction abatement. -Low-income families can potentially be very hard-hit by the health crisis through the loss of wages, jobs, transportation, childcare, and more. They will need our support now and into the future. Please advocate for any community programs that provide resources to families at risk of homelessness.
