Fort Bend Family Promise
HomeAid Houston and Long Lake Ltd. partnered to build a 4,000 square foot Day Center for Fort Bend Family Promise in Missouri City, Texas.
Fort Bend Family Promise was created to meet the immediate needs of homeless families while empowering them to attain self-sufficiency. Up to sixteen families can participate in the Family Promise program. Families gather at the Day Center in the morning to prepare lunches for their children and ensure the children get to the school buses. Parents then prepare for their workday or spend the day looking for employment. Families receive intensive case management services to find housing and jobs, in addition to identifying and meeting other needs. Each evening, when the children return from school, families gather up and head to their host church for dinner, fellowship, and a comfortable place to sleep.
