We Are Adding a New Agency!
We are so excited to share that United Way of Albany County is adding a new member agency! Please welcome Family Promise of Albany County as our newest partnering agency! Family Promise of Albany County’s mission is to help children and families who are homeless or low-income achieve sustainable independence through a community based response. Family Promise of Albany County addresses the immediate human need for shelter and food. Second to those immediate needs, FPAC provides educational components to provide guests with the skills in order to become self-sufficient. These educational components build skills such as budgeting, tenant/landlord relationships, and healthy nutrition, just to name a few.
Family Promise has partnered with local congregations and our community center to provide hospitality services to families experiencing homelessness. The host sites provide beds, quality food, and companionship. When not at the host site, families are at the Day Center, which is where they will have access to educational opportunities, hygiene facilities, and places to research job opportunities.
Our community will benefit greatly from the services Family Promise has to offer! Please take a moment to visit their website and learn more about United Way of Albany County’s newest agency!
