Family Promise of Western New York
Building Communities, Strengthening Lives
Family promise provided more than shelter, food, clothing, transportation, and household necessities. They also gave us comfort and respect. (Her son) is disabled, being born with Down syndrome. Once the staff and volunteers met him, they were more than happy to provided accommodations for his special needs. Each one was more than concerned of the choices I was making for future housing and the areas in which I was looking to reside.
Being a client of Family Promise was the best thing that has happened for the both of us. For (her son), I believe he would say he enjoyed being in the program because he met so many new friends. He was so excited playing basketball and other activities in the gyms and other entertainment areas. As for me, I feel the best part was not only receiving assistance, but to be able to join in the worship services on Sundays and to understand the different types of Christianity. My faith was not just restored but now it is stronger than ever.”
