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:

PARTNER CHURCHES

We partner with a network of local churches that volunteer to provide meals and other services to our guest one week at a time, up to four times a year. The volunteers engage our guest in activities such as crafts, games, assist children with homework and/or mentoring classes.

EMPLOYMENT SEARCHES

Our guests come to the Day Center where they are assisted in building a resume and looking for employment. 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

Family Promise of Augusta operates a cost-free Child Care Center for the children of our guests who are not enrolled in school, or who are out of school. Those who are not school age are provided with a curriculum to help prepare them for school.

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

Our Family Transitional Housing program is a six-month program designed to assist and support families on their journey to regain independence. We provide independent housing units for families ready to live independently yet require additional time and services to achieve total self-sufficiency. We ensure families have everything they need; this includes furniture, linens, household items, and transportation. During their stay in transitional housing, they are responsible for utilities and other monthly expenses and must save 30 percent of their income and look for permanent housing. All guests entering transitional housing must have regular meetings with the case manager.

SHELTER DIVERSION

Diversion is a client-driven program to help families with children avoid the trauma of experiencing unsheltered homelessness or a shelter stay, saving shelter capacity for those most in need. This strategy helps families identify immediate alternate housing arrangements and connects them with services and financial assistance to help divert the family’s need for a shelter stay.
