Participate in Giving Tuesday with Family Promise of Waukesha County!
Family Promise of Waukesha County has received a $10,000 grant from Help Us Move In (HUMI), an organization whose focus is to end homelessness for children. This grant challenges Family Promise to match the $10,000 award and then match that $20,000 in 2022. Our goal for Giving Tuesday is to raise the $10,000 needed to match the funds received from HUMI. These funds will be used for rent and mortgage payment relief and move-in cost assistance as part of our Homelessness Prevention Program.
A total of $5,000 total has from committed by three companies. They are: Westbury Bank, The American Deposit Management Company, and Bank Five Nine. This has given us a great start toward our goal!
Can you help us get the rest of the way?
What is Giving Tuesday?
From Giving Tuesday’s website:
“GivingTuesday was created in 2012 as a simple idea: a day that encourages people to do good. Over the past seven years, it has grown into a global movement that inspires hundreds of millions of people to give, collaborate, and celebrate generosity.
Whether it’s making someone smile, helping a neighbor or stranger out, showing up for an issue or people we care about, or giving some of what we have to those who need our help, every act of generosity counts and everyone has something to give.”

The funds raised on Giving Tuesday will go toward building our prevention program. This program provides relief for low-income families, including rent assistance to keep families from experiencing homelessness. To date, Family Promise of Waukesha County has helped 24 families, including 35 adults and 55 children. All 24 families in our prevention program remain in their homes.
In November 2020 alone, we have had 22 requests for assistance. With your support we can continue to help low-income families in Waukesha County to stay in their homes and avoid experiencing homelessness!
