CARDBOARD BOX CITY UPDATE
Due to lack of participant sign ups for Cardboard Box City 2015, we have downsized our event. We will have some boxes, pizza, drinks, games and a movie from 6-9 pm on Friday October 2nd, 2015 at: 510 West Palouse River Drive (upstairs), Moscow Idaho 83843
If you are still interested in attending please email firstname.lastname@example.org and the number that will be attending so we can be prepared for the number of guests. Thanks for all of the ongoing support of FAMILY PROMISE OF THE PALOUSE
Ending homelessness on the Palouse, one family at a time.
Did you know families comprise nearly 40% of all who are homeless and more than 15% of Americans live in poverty, including one in five children (22%), the highest rate in the industrialized world?
Family Promise of the Palouse is a nonprofit organization that operates through an Interfaith Hospitality Network (IHN) to provide immediate shelter to homeless families in our community while helping people achieve lasting independence. Our IHN is a partnership of interfaith congregations in our community helping families who are facing homelessness. We are an affiliate of the national Family Promise program that has served over 400,000 people – mostly children – over the past 20 years.
In our first year of operation, we provided temporary shelter and support to 16 families and saw 80% of them move on to a better housing situation.
