Family Promise of Carteret County

Family Promise of Carteret County Our vision is a community where every family has a home, a livelihood, and the opportunity to build a better future for all. Family Promise of Carteret County (FPCC) strives to provide a Christian outreach service to motivated homeless persons residing in Carteret County, helping them to survive economic hard times while maintaining their human dignity.
(5)

Priority is given to family units, i.e., single parents with a child or children, couples with children and pregnant women. Because homelessness and poverty is widespread in our society, and has many causes, FPCC must provide levels of services that may include budgeting, counseling, goal planning, nutritional counseling and a wide network of volunteers. Through our Interfaith Hospitality Network

Hello Friends of Family Promise!
As usual, we're posting our needs.
We are still well-stocked on sanitary products, and if anyone needs them, they are welcome to swing by.
With the upswing of Outreach Ministry, we are experiencing more demand for shower and laundry needs, mainly shampoo and laundry detergent for High Efficiency machines, but also conditioner and body wash. Feel free to swing by at 10am to 3pm most weekdays, except Wednesday, when we will be on reduced hours from 2pm to 4pm.
If we aren't here, you are welcome to leave donations on the stoop. Please cover any porous boxes with a plastic bag and leave your name and number in our mailbox if we aren't here. We'd love to add you to our contact list!

FAMILY IN NEED: A family here needs foster care for their 2 year old therapy dog. His name is Benben, he is a well behaved minpin/chihuahua. He has received official training as a therapy animal for their daughter.
There was an outbreak of kennel cough where he was staying, so although he was not at the kennel when the outbreak was discovered, he is considered under quarantine restriction for 2 weeks.
If you have a dog already, please keep this in consideration.

Hello Friends of Family Promise! We are hoping to extend our hours soon to return our Outreach Ministry to full strength, which means we would like to call again to say we need you to volunteer! Please call us to start the process!

That said, outreach is still available, and we need supplies!
We have diapers for newborns up to size 3, and some formula, as well as sanitary products, toothpaste, and hygiene kits.

We need size 4 diapers, bottled water, Drift (laundry detergent for baby clothes), paper towels, and bibs.

We are also trying to secure a Blu-ray/DVD player for entertaining children on rainy days.
Very important, if anyone has a laptop they can donate, our guests need to be able to access online applications and resources at all times, not only when the office is open. Some of our students have online assignments, and our parents all need the internet to reach their employment opportunities.

Thank you for everything you do, and any ways you can help are always deeply appreciated! Together, we are making the world a better place, by helping the least of these.

Good Saturday morning FB Friends,
As you may be aware Family Promise currently has been housing 1 family of 10 for the past 3 months. While with us we have been teaching, good nutritional habits, money management, time management, organizational skills, parenting skills, and everyday life skills. Very soon this family will be moving into their own housing. To be successful, it is so important that they leave us with the skills and tools they need.
Well, this is where I need your help...
We have a group of quilting volunteers that have asked if they could make a quilt for each one of our currently family members to have on their beds but need assistance with the batting and backing. Total cost for needed supplies is $500, each handmade quilt would be a cost of $50. Will you help us raise the money to make this happen for our 8 children and 2 parents? If you are interested in helping a check can be mailed to
Family Promise, 1500 Arendell St. Morehead City, NC 28557 or go to our website, www.familypromisecarteret.org hit donate.
Thank you friends for all you do for Family Promise and please keep us in your prayer as we (together) are the hands and feet of God.

Thursday these sweet kindergarten students from First Presbyterian Church stopped by Family Promise to bring new pajamas to 15 homeless children. Now that’s following the star and shining His Light!

Facebook friends, I know some have seen the post’s regarding The Christmas 🌟 star appearing this year on December 21st. I couldn't help but really take a deeper look at how amazing that this occurrence would be happening in the year 2020.

In the year when Jesus was born, there was violence, chaos, political and social unrest. It was dark. The Magi found him by way of the star, which was the "meeting" of 3 stars: Jupiter, Saturn 🪐 and Mars. They followed the star until it rested on where he was and they began to worship him. In a time where it was dark, Light was brought into our world. Jesus stepped in to the chaos and brought peace.
Fast forward to this year, 2020. It's a time of violence, chaos, political and social unrest. It is dark. Winter Solstice, December 21st, being a time where the day is the shortest and night is the longest...it's literally the "darkest day" and is the beginning of what most would say the cold, dark winter season. But on the darkest day this year, Jupiter and Saturn meet, giving us the Christmas Star! How fitting...that in the moment of time during the Christmas season that we get to see this beautiful reminder...that even in the darkest of times...Light will, and has, stepped in. In our chaos He is there. In our darkest time, He is there. He brings Light, and makes all things new.

So as you look out on Monday evening December 21st for the Christmas Star, may we all be reminded of God’s power, and His Light that He brings for all mankind. He is perfect at stepping into chaos and bringing it into peace.

So as Christmas week begins it is my hope, and wish for each of you to find His Light, His Love, and His Salvation! Merry Christmas friends from all of us at Family Promise of Carteret County ♥️

Community Helping Community, doesn’t get much better than this! Thank you Mary Cheatham King Real Estate!!

In 2020, our team launched the MCKRE Gives initiative, donating money back into the community on behalf of our clients. Each time we help a family buy or sell a home, we donate $100 in their name to the MCKRE Gives fund to be distributed to local non-profits. In honor of the 32 families who bought or sold a home with us in September, we're donating $3,200 to Family Promise of Carteret County!

Family Promise houses families with children allowing them to recover, rebound and start over fresh. They do incredible things with limited space and resources, providing a place for families to live, both temporarily and long-term. Our local Family Promise chapter has recently taken in a family of 10 under their own roof, since other options weren't available. The MCKRE Gives donation will provide this family with $1,600 to shop for clothes and shoes, a bulk supply of hygiene products (such as shampoo, conditioner and diapers), and an additional $1,000 for the staff at Family Promise to put towards general needs – all thanks to the 32 families who chose us to assist with their real estate needs in September!

We are grateful to Family Promise for providing hope to families who may have lost it along the way. To learn more about Family Promise, their mission and how YOU can help provide support over the holidays, visit their website at www.familypromise.org. And to learn more about MCKRE Gives, visit: www.marycheathamking.com/mckre-gives.

Thank you to all of our wonderful clients who helped make this happen!

FB Friends Family Promise needs your help, we are working with a family from Downeast, helping a wonderful Christian family of 6 find housing. After Florence this families home was completely damaged finding themselves completely homeless. Family Promise helped them find a home in the Downeast area as they began working with agencies all over the county for continued long term recovery. But, the good folks that rented to them is now needing their home back to move here full time .
What would be ideal is a 4 bedroom house/mobile home with 2 baths or if need be a larger home with 3 bedrooms and 2 baths.
We are looking to place this family as soon as possible, if you know someone that is looking to rent contact me anytime @ 252-725-5089.
Please Share with your FB friends!
