Families -- not individuals -- now make up over 40% of the nation's homeless population. Family Promise of Genesee County is dedicated to helping families during their times of crisis, by keeping them together.

I'm proud to serve as Master of Ceremonies for Family Promise of Genesee County's 4th annual 'Winter Gala and Silent Auction' which takes place this Saturday (2/4) at the Genesys Banquet Center.

While traditional shelters separate family members based on gender once children reach the age of 13, Family Promise is dedicated to keeping families together during periods of temporary homelessness.

Family promise, through its network of churches, volunteers, and foundations, helps family units remain intact when facing a temporary housing crisis. FPGC is a non-profit organization (part of the national Family Promise organization)
