2020 has been a year of many changed plans and expectations. Family Promise Affiliates across the country spent the year adapting to a pandemic and increased need for services by finding innovative ways to serve families throughout this difficult year.
But one thing has remained constant through every up and down: the never ending support of our Family Promise community. Thank you for your dedication to Family Promise and our mission to prevent and end family homelessness.
Family Promise CEO, Claas Ehlers recorded a message to tell you what your support made possible this year and give you an update on where we are heading in 2021.
