It Takes A Village To Raise A Child

Family Promise of White & Habersham has some exciting things going on! Our three families are all working hard to stay on track, save money and work their way to a sustainable life. They would not be able to do any of this without the support of people like you – YOU ARE THEIR VILLAGE! For example, with the help and generosity of long-time Board member Bob Hirschi and Daunch & Hirschi Construction, we are finishing out a room in the basement that will serve as a quiet room. This will be a great asset to family members who work at night as well as children who may need to nap during the day.

We have also been working diligently to bring new churches on to help serve our guests as host/support congregations. While we have the promise of one new church and another potential congregation at this time, we would love to know of any others that may be interested in serving homeless children and their families right here in our own community.

Although our program is going strong, we still have a few needs that we could use your help with! The below items will allow us to better serve current and future families.

  • NEW bath towels and wash cloths so that each family will have their own clean set to use while in the program and to take to their new home upon graduation
  • Twin-sized mattress covers
  • A large area rug for the new quiet room in the Day Center basement
  • Gift Cards to purchase incidentals for families (Many of our families need items that Family Promise cannot always pay for such as gas for their vehicles, new work supplies such as work boots, or baby items like diapers.)

If you are able to help with any of these items, please contact Martie or Marquise at the Day Center (706.865.7725) or feel free to bring items by during office hours between 8am and 5pm Monday-Friday.
