Providing Service to Pinellas County Families Since 2015
Hello, Family Promise Family!
The FPP Board would like to share an exciting update. Our national Family Promise organization has agreed to work with us in getting back on our feet. Losing two executive directors in two years along with COVID-19, has been a setback for sure.
Regional Director, Teressa Ramsey, and Lori Wilson from Family Promise National, have reached out with encouragement and ideas. They suggested we put an Interim Executive Director in place for a period of up to at least six months while we actively pursue a permanent Director. The Interim Executive Director role will be to assist in our re-organization and strengthen our presence in the community.
The search for an Interim Executive Director has begun. A committee made up of three board members and two non-board volunteers will be interviewing candidates over the next few weeks with the hope having an Interim Executive Director in place in the near future. The goal of our Interim Executive Director will be to advise and direct us towards our goal of becoming operational and serving guests again as soon as possible. The search for a permanent executive director will be conducted and in place later in 2022.
As a Board we realize that the need to help the homeless in Pinellas County is still great, perhaps greater than ever before. We are determined to see our ministry functional as soon as possible. We want to thank all of our congregations and individuals for hanging in there with us, not giving up, continuing to give prayer and financial support, and being ready to step up to volunteer and host when the time arrives. Our ultimate goal is a return to serving homeless families in Pinellas County.
