Family Promise News


2020 Was a Very Productive Year Thanks to St. Theresa & St. James Parish Members!

By most measures, 2020 sucked!  So here, hopefully for your enjoyment, is a bit of good news that goes against the status quo.          
Even with all of the challenges brought on by the pandemic, FP was blessed enough to help more families in 2020 than we did in 2019.  We quickly adapted to COVID by moving our guest families from churches into hotels and by helping families retain housing they would have otherwise lost. 

On top of that, we’ve moved from a rented space in Wales into our very own building at 139 E. North Street in Waukesha.  This new site is more conveniently located for those we serve as it’s on a bus route.  The move actually reduced our operating expense and provided us with a larger, more versatile space.  Bonus!

We Can Always Use Your Help!

Even though Family Promise is not planning to shelter guests in our member churches for the foreseeable future, we still need funding to help our graduates stay in their homes. Please consider helping out with a donation to Family Promise. You can donate through the weekend collection basket, or visit the Family Promise website below and click on "donate."  Thank you.
