To raise awareness about homelessness, Family Promise of Gallatin Valley is asking participants to sleep anywhere without a bed: a car, tent, living room floor, etc..
Too many families in our community are experiencing homelessness every day. Right now, we are experiencing a 238% increase of families in need of assistance from this time last year. That is shocking and our staff is trying to keep up with the increase of demand. We have increased out ability to shelter families from 7 families to 19 at a time in just a few months. With this increase of families in need of shelter, food, and case management services, so too has our spending.
The pandemic has exacerbated the already devastating homeless crises. With families living in close quarters or enduing the cold and heat, we are doing everything we can to help families experiencing homelessness.
