Family Promise of Central Connecticut (FPCCT) is a local affiliate of Family Promise, the leading national nonprofit engaging communities to address family homelessness. FPCCT opened our doors in 2017 to serve families facing homelessness. Now on the cusp of celebrating our five-year anniversary, we are recruiting innovative, empathetic, community focused people to join our volunteer Board of Trustees to lead us into the future.

Currently, FPCCT is serving 15 families at risk of homelessness by providing a variety of supportive services. Our staff works with each family to ensure that basic needs are met and that they are safely housed or sheltered. Based on availability, families participating in our programs may receive services like rental and/or utility assistance, groceries, and customized case management services including one-on-one supportive conversations, program referrals, and financial literacy activities.

If you are ready to make an impact in the fight against family homelessness, please consider donating your time and talents to our Board of Trustees. For more information, please contact Cheryl Liedke, Board President: cherylliedke@gmail.com
