More families than ever are struggling to pay their bills during the pandemic. Family Promise of Laurens County is the only organization in Laurens County created specifically to serve families with children experiencing or at risk of homelessness. Our Homelessness Prevention Program works to keep families together at home when they are struggling financially. We work with families on accessing resources and creating a plan for stability.
“Children experiencing homelessness are more likely to fall behind in school, be sick more frequently, and be diagnosed with mental health disorders such as anxiety and depression. We firmly believe that a child’s future begins at home and we want to do what we can to ensure children do not have to experience the trauma of homelessness at all,” said Naomi Broadway, FPLC Executive Director. “Receiving this grant will allow us to increase our impact on families with children in Laurens County at risk of homelessness. We hope you will vote for us and help a very important cause.”
