Congratulations Family Promise of Greater Phoenix!

by | Apr 20, 2012 | 0 comments

We were very excited to honor Family Promise of Greater Phoenix in April for “Presenta Plaque to your Hero”!  The mission of Family Promise is to reduce family homelessness by providing shelter, case management, assistance and life-skills training so families can gain self-sufficiency. They have helped an estimated 346 families with their programs in the past 11 years!

We came across a news article in March about a homeless family in Scottsdale sharing the struggles of living in their car. The young family of four drove from Missouri to Arizona hoping to fill a space at a shelter, but when they arrived the shelters were full.  “Being homeless was new for the Grieves family. Bethany had been a nurse, Phillip was a teacher, but they both ended up unemployed.” (Source:

Family Promise teamed up with The Company Store for a buy one, get one event. For every comforter purchased, one is donated. This small, but incredible act of kindness gave the family the hope and motivation they needed to get back on their feet. Phillip and Bethany will never forget how Family Promise changed their lives. You can read the full story here!

Congratulations and thank-you to Family Promise, who continues to provide motivation and hope to families in need!
