Giving Day is today!!

This day is super important to us at Family Promise because it enables us to help so many families!! To donate & learn more about what we do head over to www.FamilyPromiseSarasota.org/DONATE-1 !!

All donations between April 15-21 will be counted towards Giving Day and we have local organizations matching our donations up to $4500 & every bit counts.

The earlier a program intervenes in a housing crisis, the lower the cost. The later the intervention, the more costly and the lower the success rate. But at the latest stages of an individual’s housing crisis, it is virtually certain she or he would have become homeless without assistance.

If you want to check out what we've been up to at our Day Center & give donations in person, we will be hosting an OPEN HOUSE from 10am -7pm on GIVING DAY, April 21st.

Help us support homeless children

Family Promise of Sarasota is a nonprofit, non-denominational organization affiliated with National Family Promise, which was founded in 1986. We provide shelter, meals, and support to homeless children and their families. We initiate coordinated local efforts that bring communities together to help homeless families regain their housing, their independence, and their dignity. Our vision is a nation in which every family has a home, a livelihood, and a chance to build a better future.

Homeless children and their parents in Sarasota need your help! Family Promise of Sarasota has temporarily suspended operations and needs a few more congregations to support our mission. Can your faith organization (all are welcome!) help host homeless families just a few weeks a year? For more information, please call our office at 941-952-1800 or email [email protected].

Workshop on Courtesy and Conflict this morning at Gulf Coast. Presenter Laurie Huebner directed an intimate, interactive session on dealing with issues (big or potentially so) in the workplace; with vendors, clients, customers--the world at large, the world writ small. It all comes down to "playing nice" and staying civil...walking in the other person's moccasins for insight.
Hello Family Promise Sarasota! I wanted to thank you for providing housing for people in need in our beautiful hometown of Sarasota. Your page reminded me of a documentary I saw recently called Good Fortune. Good Fortune follows the life of billionaire and philanthropist John Paul DeJoria; founder of Patrón Tequila and Paul Mitchell hair products. John Paul DeJoria survived homelessness twice all while raising a child on his own and building his multibillion dollar empire. After watching Good Fortune, I felt hopeful for anyone out there who has ever struggled with poverty or homelessness. Fortunately, Good Fortune is available on VOD platforms today. https://itunes.apple.com/us/movie/good-fortune/id1230337116
They are looking to add to the Bag Lady team. If you like to sew...or just enjoy cutting and ripping and following a pattern, call the Family Promise office at (941) 952-1800 and we'll put you in touch with them. Also looking for jewelry pins to adorn the bags and ties, which form the foundation (like Family Promise) for something new and beautiful.
We love our Bag Ladies. They make beautiful evening bags--out of gentlemen's ties! and fancy pins and brooches! Dottie and Ruth brought a few samples in recently...gearing up once more after a major selling spree that brought in wonderful donation income for Family Promise.
