Potential guests must call in and speak with Operations Manager Fran Doran if they need shelter. Fran performs a phone interview and collects information to run a background check .
During the background check, Fran looks specifically for violent crimes (especially with weapons), identity theft, repeated large theft, controlled dangerous substances, and any open bench warrants, in addition to checking the sex offender registry.
If the potential guest passes the background check , and there is space available, they are invited to Easton’s Promise for an interview with Fran and Executive Director Julie Lowe.
At the interview, Fran and Julie are looking not only at the answers to their questions, but also at the interaction between parents and children, and whether the prospective guest seems like they will be willing and able to follow rules, stick to the program, and get along with other guests.
If candidates seem to be a good fit for S4, they are then invited to stay at Easton’s Promise. Then, their journey through our S4 Program (Shelter, Stability, Support, Success) begins!
