A Place to Call Home
When a new family comes into the Family Promise of Genesee County program there is an adjustment. There’s a new routine, new faces, new surroundings and, most importantly, new opportunities. Adjustments don’t just impact the parents; children are faced with them too.
Each family is different but, a majority of the young children, eagerly embrace the program, the volunteers and the different toys! Sometimes, we’re lucky enough to receive reminders of how Family Promise of Genesee County positively impacts the children. A 9-year old girl shared her thanks in a special way, on her first day of the program. In addition to what is pictured below, she also shared how much she loved her new friends, the playroom and how happy she was to be here with us.
Her excitement hasn’t dimmed and to know our program, our volunteers and our guest families have had a positive impact on her life is amazing!
