Thank you, Women Who Care
Family Promise of Juneau would like to thank the 100+ Women Who Care for selecting us as the non-profit to support this quarter. The generosity and commitment of the women in Juneau is humbling and exciting.
Family Promise of Juneau will celebrate its three-year anniversary on April 30. During that time we have hosted 27 families and recently served 14 households through Rapid Rehousing. The $20,000 raised will be kept here in Juneau to support families who are experiencing homelessness or at risk of becoming homeless. The current pandemic has made Family Promise reconfigure how we walk with families safely as we continue to serve families. Normally, Family Promise of Juneau uses local churches and volunteers from faith communities to provide hospitality to families who are experiencing homelessness. Volunteers provide meals and overnight hospitality, while a care navigator meets with families during the day to work on setting and reaching goals to move into sustainable housing. The organization is making adjustments to provide shelter and meals safely as well as shifting focus to keeping families in housing or finding housing quickly. Family Promise also hosts a Rapid Rehousing program that provides rental and utility assistance to keep households in homes. Please call 500-3032 or 500-2740 for more information.
