In the United States, today, one child out of five lives in poverty. And families with children make up over 40% of the people in our country who experience homelessness. Every day, hundreds of children leave schools in our neighborhoods with no house waiting for them.
Family Promise of Clear Creek provides a safe and caring environment to homeless children and their families, including shelter, meals, hospitality and transportation. Ours is a self-sufficiency program with the objective of transitioning guests from homelessness, to permanent housing.
We serve low-income families facing homeless due to unfortunate circumstances, such as loss of employment, death of a spouse, home foreclosure, natural or accidental disasters, or even an eviction. Families would be a unit that includes infants, children, teenagers, couples and single parents.
On the other hand, single individuals, persons with serious psychiatric problems and people with current drug or alcohol addictions are not appropriate for our program. Although we do not serve people with these needs, we work closely with other shelters in the area to ensure that those we are unable to serve find support and shelter elsewhere.
Our program is designed to help our guest families achieve sustainable independence and self-sufficiency, through supportive services, and aid in the search for employment and housing.
Typically, through our daily support and educational programs, our families are able to achieve self-sufficiency, or regain independence within 90 to 120 days. While in our program, families will spend their day time hours at our Day Center, working with the director, a case manager or a volunteer guide, on various activities such as: Individual Case Management, Weekly Goal Setting, Life Skills Classes, a Fast Track GED Certificate Program, an Individualized Education Program, Parenting and Money Management Classes, etc.
We will also provide an After Care Program, for all of our graduates to enhance their continued success.
If you, or someone you know needs shelter, please contact Family Promise immediately; we are be happy to set up an intake interview to determine if the family can benefit from our program.
