Family Promise Volunteer of the Year
We are so excited to present Janet Foskey as our 2022 Volunteer of the Year. Janet’s valuable contributions have been an essential part of the growth of our program since we opened our doors in 2013. You may not have met Janet personally, but it is almost certain you have experienced her contributions in some capacity. As if preparing the Family Promise Newsletter is not enough, she creates our marketing materials, participates in fundraisers, and is an amazing Office Angel. Her attention to detail is impeccable, she is committed, thoughtful, and creative. Janet has been instrumental in helping us develop our brand and to say we appreciate her is an understatement. Janet, we celebrate you not only during the month of April (Volunteer Appreciation Week) but this entire year! We are blessed to have you as a faithful volunteer.

Would you like to make a huge difference in the life of a Family Promise guest?
If so, then the Family Promise Mentoring Program is the place for you.
Low-income families face enormous stresses. The Family Promise Mentoring Program is designed to help families overcome these stresses as they work toward becoming a self-sustainable family once again. In the Family Promise Mentoring Program, economically vulnerable families are
matched with trained volunteer mentors who work with them, one-on-one, over an extended period of time for approximately one hour each week.
Mentors help individual families define and meet goals to:
• Develop life skills
• Connect with community resources
• Improve their housing and employment situations
• Nurture and support their children
Mentors build committed, trusting relationships. They listen. They offer understanding and respect.
They help families overcome challenges and disappointments and celebrate successes.
