This year, let’s keep families home for good.
The Smith* family lost their home when their landlord sold the property, forcing them to quickly move in with a friend. This “friend” ended up stealing many of the Smith’s personal belongings and money they had saved. Thanks to generous donors like you, Family Promise of Davie County was there to help. The family entered our Transitional Housing program where they were given temporary housing and case management. Within two and half months, they found permanent housing, increased their savings, and received furniture and household items for their new home. It has been almost one year since this family graduated from our Transitional Housing program and they are still housed and doing really well.

amily Promise takes a holistic approach to addressing the issue of family homelessness in our community.
We provide financial assistance to prevent homelessness and divert families from entering shelter. On average it costs $710 to prevent homelessness/divert a family from shelter.
We provide temporary shelter for families that have nowhere else to go. It takes about 79 days for families in our shelter and transitional housing programs to secure independent, permanent housing.
We provide ongoing stabilization support to ensure families maintain their housing. 90% of the families that go through our programs are still stably housed one year later.
Our calls requesting assistance are up 137% from November of 2020 to now. Families in Davie County need our services now more than ever before.
Will you help? Your donation empowers families. It builds community. It creates solutions. It keeps parents together with their children. It offers shelter. It is a key piece of the puzzle that gets families home!
