What is your favorite part of volunteering for Family Promise?
Witnessing and being a part of a non-profit (FBFP) organization that has grown each year in helping families escape homelessness.

Do you have any favorite memories from your time serving Family Promise?
"Sleeping in Church”. It is a joyful experience to interact with families while eating a meal together and spending the night as an overnight host in my home church.

Do you belong to a congregation or are you an unaffiliated volunteer?
I am a member of First Presbyterian Church Sugar Land, which is a Host Congregation. I help with set-up and tear-down and volunteer as a dinner and overnight host as needed. A second memory is the journey to acquire a building for our Fort Bend Family Promise Day Center. From working with an architect to securing funding, getting approvals from City Council and Homeowners Association, purchasing land, entering into an agreement with HomeAid for construction, monitoring the process, and paying the invoices… the journey of 4 years came to fruition.

Do you have any kids and/or pets?
I have three children, one son and two daughters, all of whom are grown and on their own. One daughter and family live nearby with our two granddaughters whom we enjoy immensely.From looking at you, no one would guess that…
I serve as my own travel agent to explore travel possibilities around the world and act on them to get "The Price is Right.”

Favorite place to eat:
Live Oak Grill, Sugar Land.

What would you tell people who are considering helping Fort Bend Family Promise?
Homeless families are not a stranger to Fort Bend County. There is a constant waiting list of those who seek assistance in returning to self-sufficiency. Fort Bend Family Promise sets forth outcomes that lead to success. Well over 90% of our guests in the past 2 years have moved into permanent housing. Volunteerism and financial support is needed to continue the momentum that has been set in motion.
