Provide a steady hand up for families on the path out of homelessness

A godparent steps willingly into your life to walk with you. A godparent is someone you can count on, a steady, benevolent presence as you make your way in the world. A godparent’s help can keep you going when the road gets rough.

Will you Be a Godparent to homeless families with children at Family Renew Community?

Be a Godparent is Family Renew Community’s new option for making sure you are there for homeless families with children when they need you. It allows you to sign up online for a monthly gift in any amount to be automatically charged to a credit or debit card. Please use the button above or CLICK HERE to choose a giving level and enter your credit card information.

Whether your budget allows for $10 a month, $250 a month or something in between, your donation will provide much more than shelter for homeless families. Living in the privacy and security of their family's rent-free apartment, children will go to school rested, bathed, in clean clothes and ready to study and play. With intensive yet compassionate guidance from case managers, mothers and fathers will improve their employment, money management and parenting. They'll pay down debts, repair credit and build savings. In the end, they'll move into places of their own, equipped with resources and skills to maintain financial stability.

Thanks to Family Renew Community supporters, the journey out of homelessness ended successfully in 2017 for 39 Volusia County families, including 78 children. Of the 42 families who moved out of their apartments at Family Renew Community's residential campuses during the year, 81 percent moved into permanent housing. Since 1989, we've served more than 1,400 families.

Helping to change lives for kids, moms and dads like these has never been easier. You will receive a receipt by email each time your monthly gift is charged. You can adjust or discontinue your automatic donation at any time. Please use the BE A GODPARENT DONATION FORM to start this month.
