There are over 450 children in South Sarasota County schools who have been identified as homeless.
 

Family Promise of South Sarasota County, a 501(c)(3) non-profit, seeks to help families with minor children who are in temporary need of housing. We will serve families in transition in Venice, North Port, and Englewood.  We are a faith-based organization that enables the community to work together to address the needs of children without a home by providing temporary shelter, meals, and comprehensive services to their family to help them achieve lasting self-sufficiency.  

There are many reasons a family becomes a family in transition. The fact remains, however, the circumstances have nothing to do with a child—and that a child needs stability in order to succeed. Families are the fastest growing homeless population.
