Growing up in the face of adversity, Mikah faced challenges that many of us can only imagine. Mikah found himself in situations that left him homeless and without a safety net to rely on.
However, instead of succumbing to despair, Mikah has chosen to channel his experiences into a positive force for change. Armed with just one penny and a camera, he has set out on a 365-day journey to document his daily challenges, demonstrating the power of determination and the resilience of the human spirit.
Mikah’s journey is not just about survival; it’s about turning adversity into an opportunity to make a difference. Through his YouTube channel, he shares the highs and lows of his quest, capturing the moments of struggle and triumph, and inviting viewers to join him on this transformative experience.
What makes Mikah’s journey even more remarkable is his commitment to giving back. He has pledged to donated 75% of the proceeds he earns during the “Ultimate Penny Challenge (UPC)” to Fort Bend Family Promise.
By sharing his story and donating a significant portion of his earnings, Mikah hopes to raise awareness about the challenges faced by those experiencing homelessness, particularly children, and contribute to creating positive change in their lives.
We invite you to follow Mikah’s inspiring journey by subscribing to his YouTube channel https://www.youtube.com/@LifesAdventuresYT. Join us in cheering him on as he takes on each day with determination, resilience, and a heart full of compassion.
Mikah’s “Ultimate Penny Challenge (UPC),” is a beacon of hope, a reminder that even in the face of adversity, individuals can rise above their circumstances and make a lasting impact on the lives of others. 
Thank you, Mikah, for turning your challenges into opportunities for change. Your journey is an inspiration to us all.

The Celebrity Waiter Dinner (CWD) is our annual fundraiser to educate the community about the obstacles that our family guests face while experiencing housing insecurities. CWD is also crucial in raising the funds necessary to give immediate support to our family guests. Every $1 donated is matched by $3 of in-kind goods and services using the Family Promise care cost model.

We will  raise crucial funds for Fort Bend Family Promise, which provides a multitude of services to families in Fort Bend County who are temporarily experiencing or on the cuff of  homelessness. The pandemic has dramatically increased the need for services.

Your involvement will play an important role in the event’s success. We hope you will join us for a night to be forever stamped upon your heart. 

Purchase your tickets or sponsor a table for your family and friends to enjoy “A Home of My Own” experience live, enjoy some great music, bid on the silent and live auctions, and eat some great food prepared by a well known chef!
