For most of us, it's difficult to imagine worrying about where our family will sleep each night. And even if we can imagine it, we don’t really know how we would respond in such difficult circumstances. The fear and worry of facing all those challenges while not having a safe place for your child to sleep is a nightmare. And fighting this nightmare is why Family Promise of Cobb County exists.
When a family comes to us, we try to ease those worries and help parents get the tools they need. They work with our case manager to line up all the necessities to achieve stability. Some of those necessities include food, housing, jobs, and other resources to be on their own. Once they have reached all those milestones, they 'graduate' from our program. But our relationship with our families doesn't end once they move into their own place. Our staff and volunteers are present during some of the worst times these parents have faced. We have all bonded and they are members of our growing family.
