Wearing this T-shirt Will Help Give a West Michigan Family a Place to Call Home
Every day, families in West Michigan find themselves without a place to call home. Medical bills, job loss, whatever the cause, these moms and dads and kids end up sleeping in their car or crashing on the couch of whoever will have them. Needless to say, it's a stressful way to live life, especially for the kids.
Families that find themselves in a housing crisis often need to split up if they're going into a shelter. Enter Family Promise. They exist solely to help families in this situation - and there are more families needing these services every day. Family Promise provides emergency shelter and basic needs to families with children to these families. They help families find a place to call home and then walk along-side families once they move home to ensure they don't become homeless again.
There are over 80 families on a waitlist who need emergency shelter tonight and, currently, family emergency shelters are full.
It takes about $1000 to get a family through the program, and we're teaming up with GR Kids to raise money for Family Promise with proceeds from our HOME shirts helping Michigan Families.
