In the last four years, the number of school-aged homeless children in Michigan has increased by 300%. Families — not individuals — now make up over 40% of the nation’s homeless population. Family Promise of Genesee County is hosting an event Saturday (2/22) that will benefit families in Genesee County who face housing emergencies.

‘An Evening in Paris’ is the theme for this festive evening. It features a Parisian-themed dinner, raffles, live and silent auctions, and dancing. I’m honored to serve as the Master of Ceremonies for this event which takes place at the Atlas Valley Country Club in Grand Blanc, starting at 6pm.

“Our goal for Saturday’s gala is building community awareness of what Family Promise can do for the homeless families in Genesee County,” Karen Vobach, President of GCFP told Cars 108. “We have wonderful silent and live auction items, including is a six-night African photo safari!”

"Traditional shelters separate family members based on gender once children reach the age of 13. Family promise, through its network of churches, volunteers, and foundations, helps family units remain intact"FPGC is a non-profit organization (part of the national Family Promise organization) dedicated to keeping families together during periods of temporary homelessness. Traditional shelters separate family members based on gender once children reach the age of 13. Family promise, through its network of churches, volunteers, and foundations, helps family units remain intact when facing a temporary housing crisis.
