Home for the Holidays

Updated: Dec 17, 2020

After getting evicted from their rental property because their landlord sold the house, the family of four lived in their van for several months. The lack of formal childcare forced Ms. Harris to give up her job.

When asked to describe her situation she said, "Trying to live out of a van with a 15-year-old, a 10-year-old, and a 19-month-old was overwhelming and stressful." Victoria showed signs of emotional distress. Monica expressed her pain by acting out negatively.

To make matters worse, Victoria, the eldest child, was on an inhaler, which she had to have on her at all times, and the family did not have a primary care physician.

Their future looked bleak until they found shelter at Family Promise. The Family Promise team kept the family together and gave them tools to rebuild their lives.

As you decorate and bake for the holidays, consider families in our community who cannot do so.

Partner with Family Promise to create a community where every family has a home, sustainable income, and the chance to build a better future.
