LAWTON,Okla_The Family Promise Organization of Lawton held their 3rd annual appreciation dinner Tuesday night.
It was their way of thanking all the participants, contributors, and special services that allow the program to fulfill its mission. Family promise is a community-wide non-profit made up of 12 area churches dedicated to assisting newly homeless families find stability, whether that be housing, employment, or financial independence.
Beverly Burroughs is one of the programs success stories. She told us where she thought she would be without their help.
"I'd probably be under a tree with a blanket somewhere. I don't know what would happen. My whole world just came crumbling down at that very moment. I didn't know what I was going to do," explained Burroughs.
Thanks to the large number of volunteers, Family Promise is able to provide temporary housing, meals, and related support for up to four families on a weekly basis.
