Oct. 21-28th is Family Promise week. If you haven't heard of Family Promise, it is a national organization that uses community resources to help homeless children and their families achieve sustainable independence. If you would like to find out more information about it, the national website is www.familypromise.org. They have affiliates all over the country, including quite a few right here in Wisconsin.
We have been working hard to open Family Promise of Monroe County and are getting close to being able to make that happen. We will be hosting a Soup/Chili Dinner in the recreation building (gold building) at the Monroe County Fairgrounds in Tomah. We will do a short presentation about Family Promise for those that aren't aware of this program and reading and inviting the Mayors of Tomah and Sparta to sign the Proclamation, along with enjoying dinner and dessert. We hope that you can join us!
