Childhood only comes once, and no child should spend any of it caught up in family homelessness. Family Renew Community brings together religious congregations, businesses, civic and charitable organizations and individuals committed to solving homelessness in Volusia County. The program provides housing and helps homeless parents on a path toward supporting their families in places of their own.
Bouncing from one friend’s or relative’s couch to another was not the life “Anna” wanted for herself, much less for the toddler and newborn experiencing homelessness with her.
Our faith-based trustee congregations, including varied Christian denominations, Jewish and Unitarian Universalist traditions, support our work financially, with volunteer hours and in-kind contributions and in prayer on a regular basis. The public health crisis has pushed many to go beyond their routine generosity.
