A family is graduating the Family Promise program!
Crystal and her 12-year-old daughter, Joyce, entered the Family Promise program at the beginning of June after an eviction from their home. Crystal’s car was later repossessed, leaving her and Joyce without transportation and a place to stay. At the beginning of their entrance into the Family Promise program, Crystal was employed full-time, but feeling the financial strains of being out of work for a year after suffering from health issues and losing her job a year prior.
Family Promise was able to relieve some of the immediate burdens Crystal was feeling, allowing her to focus on Joyce and saving money to secure a place to call ‘home’ once again. Since their entrance, Crystal has consistently worked full-time and has made sure to meet the needs of her daughter. Joyce attended summer camps between school terms and at the start of school, was able to join her school’s choir; something she had talked about doing for a long time, to pursue her singing aspirations.
In an effort to improve professionally, Crystal independently sought out a professional certification because she knew that the designation would grant her a better, higher-paying position. After scoring high marks on her certification exam, Crystal began a higher-salaried, full-time position with a generous benefits package. Throughout the duration of their program, Crystal and Joyce have kept their senses of humor and served as sources of positivity for others, even in the face of adversity.
October 1 will mark Crystal’s successful completion of the program, and is the day that she and Joyce will move into their new home in Conroe. Because Crystal’s car was repossessed, Family Promise is gifting her a car so she does not have to worry about finding alternate transportation for her family. We are so proud of the determination and fervor that Crystal has displayed in working to create a better, more secure life for Joyce and herself.
Crystal and Joyce have completed their family’s Wishlist in hopes to have their essential needs met prior to their move-out. We are asking our community to try and donate gently used items to their needs. All items can be brought to the Day Center (1207 N. Thompson St., Conroe, 77301).
Thank you for your consideration towards this family’s needs and more importantly, for your many prayers as Crystal and Joyce move into their new life!
We are so proud of this mom and all that she has accomplished.
View the family’s WISHLIST (click link to view). If you have any of these items gently used, we’d be ever so grateful if you’d donate it to this family to help them with moving in to their new home. We understand that not everyone will be able to give and that they may not receive all that is on their list, but every little bit will help – and most importantly, it will help keep mom from having to use her savings.
If you would like to donate, please call our Day Center (936) 441–8778 to schedule a drop-off or pick-up.
Thank you for all you do to help families in need!
