OUR SERVICES

The Family Promise of Augusta (FPA) service programs are formed from many established programs and resources in the local area. The benefit of using pre-existing assets is so we can react quickly and without major costs. Guests accepted in the network are eligible to receive the following services and assistance:

HOST CHURCHES

EMPLOYMENT SEARCHES

TRANSPORT

CHILDCARE CENTER

PERSONAL SERVICES

TRANSITIONAL ASSISTANCE

HOST CHURCHES

We have a network of local churches that volunteer to house our guests for one week at a time, four times a year. When families enter our program, they are taken to the host church at 5pm each evening where they spend the night. The volunteers at the host church for the week feed the guests supper and usually have family time or a mentoring class in the evening. The next morning, these volunteers feed the guests breakfast and send them off with a sack lunch.

EMPLOYMENT SEARCHES

After leaving the host church in the morning, the adults come to the Day Center. From there, they are transported to job interviews, employment agencies, or wherever they need to be transported in their search for employment.

TRANSPORTATION

While in the program, our guests and their children are provided with cost-free transportation. Guests can be taken to and from various locations in conjunction with regaining their independence, while their children are taken to whichever school they were enrolled in prior to entering the program.

Future Promises Child Care Center

FPA operates a cost-free Day Care Center for the children of our guests. Each morning, the children who are not enrolled in school, or who are out of school, are transported to the Future Promises Child Care Center. Guests in transitional housing are still eligible for our day care services.

PERSONAL SERVICES

During a family’s stay, we try to ensure we meet all the needs of our guests including medical assistance and dental care. Life skills assistance, Budget Management and Parenting Classes are also offered. Assistance will be provided as needed with resumes, GED classes and navigating the job market.

TRANSITIONAL ASSISTANCE

After the adult of the family has found employment, successfully completes our 90-day program, and has a stable income, the family moves to one of our transitional homes; where they can stay, rent free, for up to one year. We try to make sure they have everything they need. This includes furniture, linens, household items and transportation. During their stay in transitional housing they are responsible for all other expenses and required to save 30 percent of their income as well as look for permanent housing. Regular meetings with the case manager is also required for all guest who enter transitional housing.
