Family Promise Metrowest has tweaked the format of the non-profit’s annual walkathon to account for the continuing need for social distancing measures. The May 1 – 2 Walk for Change encourages individuals, families, or small groups of friends to walk together in their home towns to raise funds and awareness for families facing homelessness.
Walk participants will be asked to register, fundraise, and walk in their community on May 1 or 2 while wearing their Walk for Change t-shirts. Register for the Family Promise Walk for Change.
A 5k walk through Natick has been planned for Sat., May 1, 1pm. Email Ann Skipper for details. Please provide your cell number. email@example.com
Throughout the pandemic, Family Promise has helped more families than ever before through its pre-eviction program, which includes shelter diversion services that allow families to bypass shelter entry altogether. Often all it takes to keep a family out of a shelter is help with moving expenses, or a safe place to stay for a few days until permanent housing becomes available.
This and other essential programs help Family Promise Metrowest to transform the lives of families with children facing homelessness by mobilizing a diverse community to provide shelter, education, and comprehensive support. It’s such programming that supports families on their path to sustainability.
Unable to participate in a walk? Donations are gratefully accepted.
Natick-based Family Promise will no longer use area congregations to shelter families
