October 2022 Newsletter – A look at what YOU make possible!

This month, we served 54 people, including:

8 Single Individuals

13 Families

28 Children

Guests ranged in age from 1 month to 62 years old

We welcomed a new family into Easton’s Promise.

Mom and Dad already have jobs, which gives them a wonderful head start on their journey to reclaiming their independence.  Their children are adjusting extremely well to life in the shelter.  We are so grateful that we can be here for them as they work to get back on their feet and achieve lasting self-sufficiency!

Valery continues her progress.

Last week, we told you about Valery, one of our mothers who recently started a new job as well as GED classes.  In addition to her regular classes, Valery is now receiving math tutoring from one of our amazing volunteers, Mary Lou Malone!

One of our school-age children joined BAAM.

One of our elementary school-aged boys recently joined BAAM (Building African American Minds).  BAAM’s mission is to empower at risk minorities to instill a sense of belonging, success, and potential.  We know that he will learn so much from his experience there, and we can’t wait to watch him grow and blossom!

Three more of our guests got jobs!One of our fathers at Easton’s Promise, and two of our single individuals – Russ and Carol – all secured employment this month.  We are so proud of them for their hard work in getting to this point.  Employment is one of the most important steps towards building financial independence, and they are now well on their way to Success!

It takes many small victories along the way before our guests achieve Success in the form of self-sufficiency.  The S4 Program is a serious, long-term commitment, and we think it’s important to celebrate every milestone along the way.  THANK YOU for giving our guests the opportunity to change their lives for the better.
