Family Promise of Butler County is an affiliate of Family Promise, Inc. which has been providing overnight lodging to children and families who are homeless throughout our nation since 1988. There are currently more than 200 affiliates in a majority of the United States. Family Promise of Butler County began serving families on September 11, 2016. It joins Warren County Interfaith Hospitality Network and the Interfaith Hospitality Network of Greater Cincinnati to address family homelessness in southwestern Ohio.
Crestview was honored to be asked by Family Promise of Butler County to film their new video promo (above) at Crestview Church in October, 2019. Crestview is blessed to be a host congregation who offers hospitality to children and families who are without a home four weeks per year.
In Butler County, the estimated number of children who are homeless has risen to 2000. As a faith community, we want to respond to this need. For further information or to contribute your time, talent or treasure, go to the Family Promise website. There are many ways that you can help these families in crisis including being a host volunteer, donating supplies for the Day Center, volunteering at the Day Center, and financial support. To find out how you can help, contact Sue Mahlock.
Crestview hosted Family Promise in August. Because of the generosity of our supporters and devoted volunteers, we were able to sponsor 2 families during their first week with Family Promise. We cooked and delivered several hot meals to their motel, as well as groceries and kids activities. Even ice cream night was a hit! Motel costs will be covered by Crestview’s donations. Thanks to all for your passionate support of this homeless ministry!
Please contact Sue Mahlock , site coordinator, if you are interested in getting involved with this ministry.
We can always use more new or gently used Beanie babies for our children guests, as well as bingo prizes for both children and adults.
Any donations may be left behind the Mission desk and put into the carton marked Family Promise.
