  • Welcome Genesee County

    Jim Hall presents Board members Diana Snider and Michelle Traynor with the keys to their new van.
    Genesee County is the home of Flint, MI, about 60 miles north of Detroit. This marks the 5th Affiliate started in the state of Michigan. The need for the program is well-illustrated by Flint’s perpetual appearance on multiple lists of the most troubled cities in America. As shelter providers in Genesee County note, at any given time, Flint’s homeless population is about 3,000, yet there are less than 200 beds available.
  • Affiliates Go Above and Beyond During Winter Storms

    Last week's storm covered Atlanta with a sheet of ice.
    In much of the country the winter of 2014 has tested people in ways they’d like to forget. From Michigan to Maine and up and down the East Coast, the severe weather has produced extraordinary challenges for Family Promise families, volunteers and staff – and produced acts of selflessness and near-heroism.
  • Welcome New Affiliates in New Jersey and Georgia

    Passaic County is in northern New Jersey and had had a program that closed about a decade ago. Cobb County is the northwest suburb of Atlanta. This gives New Jersey its 17th Affiliate, padding its lead as the state with the most Affiliates. The Peach State is climbing up the ranks; with 12 Affiliates, it ties Pennsylvania for third place.
  • We Welcome a New Wisconsin Affiliate

    Board member Kim Lopez

    Jefferson County marks the 7th Affiliate in the state of Wisconsin. The county sits in southeastern Wisconsin, between Madison and Milwaukee, and is mostly rural. There are no family shelters in this county of more than 80,000. Efforts began when John Woodbury went to visit the training taking place in Washington County. He had heard about the program and was intrigued, but went up thinking that Family Promise probably was not right for Jefferson County. He came back on a mission that culminated with their opening right after Thanksgiving, with John as the board chair.
