Update from the Director Tamikah Gowans

We have some exciting new developments & enhancements under way at Family Promise!

We received a grant from the Laffey-McHugh Foundation and also recently received a significant unexpected gift from St Albans Episcopal Church!  We are so appreciative of these financial gifts!

We have built a new relationship with a new transitional housing program being launched in Middletown, DE. This program will hopefully be taking in one of our families quite soon and is part of our strategy to work cooperatively with homelessness service providers available in our area.

We have formed a new partnership with YWCA on Kirkwood Highway. The network families will be able to take advance of their wonderful facilities.

We have plans under way to upgrade our Family Promise Center, including a playset for the children and a ramp for handicapped access to the center.

We still have some needs at the Family Promise center for in-kind donations and volunteers:
Weeding & flowerbed work around the FP center
Air conditioner (window unit)
