Ending family homelessness

What you are seeing in this photo is the signing of the deed to the Stepping Stones House over to Family Promise, given as a gift. Through your help, and donations and grants from other sources, we are able to start renovation work on this house in October. 

We are in the last month of this campaign and we are a short distance from our goal of having the house completed in time for really cold weather. The demolition of 352 public housing units in Gainesville has drastically reduced affordable low income housing. The families ready to graduate from Family Promise can't locate affordable housing and that's where the Stepping Stones house comes in. They will rent this property while still attending classes through Family Promise. Family Promise will save their rent money after utilities are paid so they will continue to see a nest egg grow. And when they can locate a suitable apartment or home, they will have money for rent and utilities deposits and first month's rent.

Please donate and help us GET OVER THE HUMP! Thank you all so m uch.
