LITTLE ROCK, Ark. -- Homeless families in Pulaksi County are finding safe places to lay their heads at night thanks to a group of churches.
The twenty-one congregations which make up Family Promise, help homeless families stay together as they strive to become independent.
Family Promise of Pulaski County houses its families in the member churches for one week at a time, and the churches provide meals, companionship, and support as well as safe shelter.
Once families enter the program the Case Manager will work with them to set goals and objectives, monitor their progression, assist them in enrolling children in school or daycare, help them with job and housing searches, identifying and applying for any benefits and/or entitlements they qualify for, and identifying and assisting them in enrolling into needed trainings and/or counseling.
