Family Promise allows communities to develop comprehensive, holistic solutions for families facing homelessness. Families come to us in crisis; our approach of coordinated compassion helps them rebuild their lives with new skills and ongoing support.
Using existing community resources, Family Promise of Greater Concord delivers life-changing services at roughly 1/3 the cost of traditional shelters. And, more importantly we keep families together in their time of crisis. In this regard, our track record reflects 83% of families who entered our shelter program found permanent housing in 12-14 weeks and were able to regain their independence.
For the period of 2015-2021 our combined efforts of wrap-around case management, shelter, meals, stabilization services, and homelessness prevention has helped a total of 382 individuals.
This includes a total of 62 family units, 90 children under 18 for a total of 210 individuals who required shelter and stabilization support; and a total of 59 family units, including 89 children under 18 for a total of 172 individuals who in mid-2020 were able to avoid shelter altogether and tap into our newly expanded diversion programming services.
In 2021 alone we are grateful to have helped a total of 105 individuals. This data, consistent with our financials reflects our core program impact and outcomes:
Shelter Program: 15 adults, 25 children: 10 family units. (6 were single Moms); and
Prevention (Diversion) Program: 36 adults, 29 children: 24 family units.
Of this combined total, 54 were children under 18 and 22 were under the age of 6.
KEEPING FAMILIES TOGETHER
