As a child Tim remembers the nights in the car, the nights staying with friends, or staying in a hotel. He remembers feeling ashamed. So, when he faced his own housing crisis, he knew what that could mean for his children. He decided to do something different. He made a call to Family Promise of Lawrence.
Tim (not his real name) and his family represent one of the many local families who experience hidden homelessness. In the last year, 87% of those we served had been staying in a variety of places, hidden from site. The parents go to work, the children go to school and they are the hidden homeless in our community.
Our mission is more important than ever. Will you help?
