WeGive.org is such an amazing and functional outlet for people who want to give back but just do not know where it is needed. It is so simple to find an organization that you believe in. I feel very fortunate to have a website like this one where I can rest assured that my donation is going where it is needed and where I intended. Look. Learn. Do. It is really is as simple as that.

Project Description

Using a blend of social services, volunteers, and underused buildings, Family Promise of Jacksonville offers hope to homeless women with children that their circumstances can be changed, and their futures have the promise of a better life. We partner with 17 local multi-denominational congregations and 800 volunteers to help homeless families find gainful employment and affordable housing. With an 85% success rate in returning homeless families with children to stability, we provide intensive, individualized case management including resources for job readiness, employment search, affordable housing, medical needs and school.
