Family Promise creates space for homeless students to learn

Here is a link to see Tiffani talking with Ann Pierret from ABC12 today about our education lab.

So thankful to have the opportunity to share how we help families, in our community, overcome a housing crisis.

For the kids they've helped over the last 6 years, they know school is the only constant. So, they found a way to make sure that stability didn't go away.

We will be introducing StoryTime every Wednesday at 4:30PM via Zoom or in person for children. Let us know if you’re interested in being a guest reader.

Our first Storytime will be next Wednesday at 4:30PM. Our very own Ms.Tiffani will be reading about Lilly! Sesame Street’s first muppet to be facing a housing crisis with her family! We hope you log in and read with us!!! ❤️

Huge Thanks to the awesome men of Forge Flint and Forge Garage! Today, another FPGC family got their wheels back! Transportation is such a huge barrier for family’s experiencing a housing crisis. This mom had to spend an average of 8 extra hours a week on public transportation to get to work 15 mins away from her home!

That means eight extra hours of day care for a single parent and eight extra hours away from her children a week!

Ask us about our Bridge Apart program and how you can help.

Do we have any volunteers that would be willing to help Tiffani paint the playroom this weekend on Sunday possibly? It will not take long at all. Thanks everyone!!! ✌️♥️🏡

💛PLEASE HELP💙 - our very own Tiffani and her 'partner-in-life' are "in it to WIN" a wedding from Longway Planetarium.

As many of you know, Tiffani was instrumental in keeping Family Promise running during the COVID lockdown.

As the Facilities Manager for the Shelter of Flint, Nick kept things moving and didn't miss a beat. They had the same concerns as we all did, how do I keep my family safe, and how do I do my job effectively? They figured out how to juggle their work schedule, home-schooling their boys, and keep their family safe with 2 essential workers in the house!

👉PLEASE help them out by going to the Longway Planetarium page to like their picture so they can win a wedding and officially tie the knot! They are the third to last picture. Talk about saving the best for last!
Good luck, my friend! 🤩

Tiffani Ferrier
“Nick came as a guest with our mutual friend to my 15th birthday party. We were close as kids growing up. I loved him then, though I never would have expected to spend the rest of my life with him. He was a part of my life until I left for college, and we went our separate ways.
When I got out of school I moved back home from an internship in Daytona Beach, Fl. Nick happened to see a post I made on Facebook about being home. We went to my childhood best friend’s birthday party in February of 2010 and have been together ever since. We have 3 beautiful boys, ages 12, 7, and 2. We both work in downtown, and while our jobs are very different. They are both essential, and critical to the people of Flint. Nick is the Facilities Manager at the Shelter of Flint, and I run another family homeless shelter called Family Promise. We both have worked through the shutdown. We’ve meant to get married almost 5 times now, I think? I’ve honestly lost count. I even put my dress in layaway once and we were going to have our reception at the Masonic Temple in downtown. Something always manages to come up. New job, new baby, wrong time, family loss, financials; we’ve just never been able to get down the aisle. We’re a little overdue! In fact most people will be surprised to know we are not in fact legally married. It’s about time we officially become husband and wife and stop just calling each other that! 😏”

We have known for years that the average family could not stay in their home if faced with a $400 emergency! Families who miss one paycheck are at risk for losing their homes. What do they do during a pandemic? The effect this will have on every day working families will become catastrophic. Lets work together to keep children where they belong; in their homes! ✌️♥️🏡

The economic downturn is shaping up to be particularly devastating for renters, who are more likely to be lower-income and work hourly jobs cut during the pandemic.

06/26/2020

Did you know in 2018 it cost $1068 for FPGC to house one guest??

Currently, we are preventing children from being homeless for only $268!!

Prevention is almost 75% cheaper than shelter!! Help us today keep kids where they belong- in their homes!!!

General information

Family Promise recognizes that poverty and homelessness are intricately connected problems that require a multifaceted response. We respond by integrating educational outreach, smart programming, effective policies, and the hands-on work of thousands of volunteers. Shelter: Our flagship program addresses family homelessness cost-effectively by utilizing existing community resources. Our guests are housed in warm, welcoming environments, typically congregational buildings with volunteers giving of their time, making meals, and sharing hospitality. They create and connect families to the community, lending their passion and expertise to help families get back on their feet. While the shelter program is centered on families experiencing homelessness, our model is a holistic response. There is simply not enough affordable housing in America; one in four renter households spend more than 50 percent of their income on rent and utilities. The majority of people we serve are helped by our two other major components: prevention and stabilization. Prevention: Family Promise Affiliates intercede on behalf of families in danger of losing their homes through a variety of programs and partnerships, providing rental assistance or landlord mediation, so families do not end up on the street. There is a tremendous benefit to families in avoiding the trauma of homelessness, but the savings to society are also considerable. Stabilization: the issues that cause homelessness are complex and often cannot be fully addressed while a family is in the shelter program. It is vital to provide continuing aftercare once families have moved back into housing. Affiliates offer a variety of supports like food donations, financial capability programs, permanent housing, and workforce development. Family Promise stabilization programs help families succeed today and create transformational opportunities for tomorrow.
