SAVANNAH, GA – JANUARY 3, 2024 – Family Promise of the Coastal Empire has received a $20,000 grant from the Georgia State of Hope which supports the launch of the nonprofit organization’s “RoadMap to Resilience’ program.
“We are very thankful for the State of Hope grant which will assist Family Promise to help children and families in the Coastal Empire overcome adversity and move forward,” said Katrina Bostick, Executive Director of Family Promise of the Coastal Empire.
Family Promise’s “RoadMap to Resilience” program provides transitional housing and opportunities for peer support to families with unique challenges to improve protective factors and long-term housing stability. The two-year program will be focused on families with young mothers aged 18-21 who are homeless and/or exiting or connected to the foster care system. The program will allow families to build housing stability, set a self-sufficiency plan, and grow alongside a network of peers.
“Young mothers with children face unique challenges, and through trauma-informed case management and support, our goal is to guide these families towards stability and independence, nurturing their journey towards success and happiness.”
Family Promise of the Coastal Empire serves Bryan, Chatham, Effingham and Liberty Counties. The organization’s mission is to offer help, hope, and hospitality to homeless families with children in our communities. For more information about the organization, please visit www.familypromisece.org.
