A Path Ahead Community Fund Awards Family
Promise Metrowest a Grant
Natick-based nonprofit Family Promise Metrowest proudly accepted a $10,000 grant from A Path Ahead Community Fund, a donor-advised fund with the Foundation for Metrowest. A Path Ahead Community Fund supports growing and sustainable 501(c)(3) organizations that fulfill basic human needs and promote long-term independence.
Since 2008, Family Promise Metrowest has provided shelter and housing support for families facing homelessness and has responded to their changing needs by expanding its programming to include the LIFE and SAIL programs, which provide transitional support and homelessness prevention services. This new grant will help fund these programs and aid FPM in its ongoing mission to help families transform their lives and create stable, sustainable homes where their children can thrive.
“I am honored to partner with Family Promise Metrowest. They are serving such an important need in the Metrowest community in helping struggling families lead independent and dignified lives through the provision of training, meals and other support, and affordable housing within a safe community,” said Sue DeRoche, A Path Ahead Community Fund Founder and Principal Donor/Advisor.
“These are challenging times and with an unprecedented increase in families facing unemployment and possible eviction, our community partners are needed more than ever. The Path Ahead Community Fund grant comes at an opportune time and we are so grateful for the support,” said Susan Crossley, Family Promise Metrowest Executive Director.
Family Promise Metrowest serves low- and moderate-income Massachusetts families with at least one child under the age of 18 that are facing homelessness. With the help of a diverse community, FPM provides resources, guidance, and encouragement to help motivated families meet their goals, move themselves out of poverty, and become self-sufficient. FPM believes that if all community members take a role in solving the homelessness crisis, together as a community we can change lives permanently.
