Promoting Awareness and Support for Homeless Families
This evening I will be singing with the band for a fundraiser for Family Promise of Forsyth County, NC. Family Promise is "a non-profit organization whose mission is to address homelessness in our community — one family at a time. By offering compassionate guidance, shelter and education through a network of interfaith congregations and community organizations, our goal is to strengthen our community by helping homeless families with children remain intact while they transition toward self sufficiency." This is a new organization within our community, opening their Day Center in August of this year, so this fundraiser is a very important event for them and will enable them to continue offering programs and support for our homeless families.
We are very excited to be a part of this event and to do a small part to recognize this issue and support this organization and these families in need. To have a listen to some songs we'll perform tonight, click here to go to The Ramshackles myspace page.
