Change A Life. Volunteer. Donate.


Family Promise of Lee County (FPLC) is a non-profit organization that provides assistance to homeless families in Lee County. Family Promise provides a community response to homelessness, made up of the giving hearts of community members, houses of faith, and local social service agencies. We believe that every child deserves a home, and that every family deserves a chance to be whole and have a roof over their head again.

We had a family to successfully complete our program last month, and they were able to establish stable housing. The mom remained as a full-time employee, while attending online courses to obtain her CNA & Cosmetology license.

This is her story as told by mom:

I am 32 years old and I am a single mother of 4 children. It is hard being a single mother sometimes you go through a lot of bumps and hills but no matter what I have to continue pushing and thriving for me and my children, but mainly for my children. I went through a lot of phases in my life where I just wanted to give up but with the motivation of my children and the amazing strength from God, I kept going. I often thought to myself ,”Why me Lord '', why put me through these situations that I can’t handle, then I think about it, God don’t put people in situations they can’t handle. I thank God for my growth and my well being since being here at Family Promise. I have accomplished so many goals that I wanted to accomplish when I was struggling. I'm so focused now, I have my head on straight, and I can do this with my strength and the Grace of God. I am working on achieving my CNA license & Cosmetology license. I am employed full time working Monday - Friday. I thank God for bringing me here to Family Promise and being able to make great success and accomplish a lot of things and the people here at Family Promise are very nice and they take their jobs serious and do everything to make sure the families have everything they need and all the help they need to get back on the right track..
