LUBBOCK, TX (PRESS RELEASE) -- Family Promise of Lubbock is offering a free Community Lunch on Thursday, May 8th, beginning at 11:45am at First United Methodist Church, 1411 Broadway. This lunch is an opportunity to learn more about the mission of Family Promise and the impact it has on homeless families in our area. The theme of this event is “One Child, One Night,” and will include an opportunity to make a donation that will provide overnight shelter for homeless families with children.

Family Promise is the only organization on the South Plains that focuses on helping homeless families with children attain self-sufficiency and secure housing. Since 1998, Family Promise has offered a hand up to over 500 families who want to leave the cycle of homelessness and dependency behind. While families are guests of Family Promise, the adults are required to secure a job, save 90% of their income to pay past debts and future deposits, and to participate in life skill education opportunities such as parenting courses and budgeting classes.

Please call Family Promise at 744-5035 if you would like to attend.
