Family Promise of Flagler County

A Community Response to Families Facing Homelessnes

August 7, 2014


The Board of Directors of Family Promise of Flagler County made the difficult decision to cease operations of Family Promise of Flagler effective August 16, 2014.  After operating on a tight budget for 26 months, we determined that our program is financially unsustainable.  Family Promise of Flagler served 25 families during the 26 months that we operated our program. During much of that time our revenues did not keep up with the cost of operations and our reserves were substantially depleted.

On behalf of the Board of Directors and co-founder Jackie Morelewicz, I thank our more than 400 volunteers, 10 host congregations and 5 support congregations for their invaluable service and support to the guest families that have been a part of our mission for more than two years. Their in-kind services included more than 5,000 prepared meals and sleeping nights as well as more than 25,000 hours of community service. We could never have accomplished what we have without your time, talent and treasures. I thank all of our donors and benefactors who believed in our mission and provided financial support toward it.

We will be forever grateful to all of you for your concern, compassion and caring for the most vulnerable in our community, our homeless children. Thank you for being there for the many adults and children that we served.

Sincerely,


Jim Morelewicz
Executive Director and Co-founder
