We are so excited to share the news that one of the wonderful families we partner with through our Family Assistance Program has been approved for a rental home! While we are grateful for the opportunity to help this hard-working family of 10 move into a house after sharing two hotel rooms for the past three months, we can’t do it alone!
With your help, we were able to secure housing for Starr and her family! We had donations pouring in for her to get her security deposit, Duke Power and water turned on, and have her house furnished. Because of you, Starr and her family are no longer homeless!
We Need Cars!
Families Forward Charlotte serves numerous families in our program who do not own cars or their own transportation. Please consider donating your old car or van to help these families who are in need. Your tax write-off donation would go directly to single mothers and families who need vehicles for work. Please contact us if you or anyone you know might be interested.
Families Forward Charlotte has two upcoming events and are looking for volunteers to help!
We need volunteers to help out with child care for our final Educational Workshop being held this coming Sunday, May 19th from 3:30pm-6:30pm. Sign up here to come help!
Hornests Nest Elementary School is hosting a Book Fair on Monday, May 20 from 9:15am-3:00pm. Sign up to volunteer at one of our shifts here. Also, all volunteers will need to register as a CMS volunteer here.
Are You Ready To Become A Family Liaison?
Do you want to make a difference in our community? We are looking for liaisons for the 2019-2020 school year. We provide each family in our Family Assistance Program with a Family Liaison (a volunteer mentor) who works with families, one-on-one, during the year to help them get closer to life-long stability. Not only will you be helping a family find independence, you will create a lifelong relationship! We will be hosting two information sessions on Wednesday, May 22 at Sardis Presbyterian Church for those interested to learn more about this amazing opportunity. Sign up to attend here.
Families Forward Charlotte would like to extend a huge "THANK YOU" to the below groups for their contributions over the past month:
