Charitable Foundation awards $5,000 to help homeless Metrowest families

Family Promise MetrowestThe MutualOne Charitable Foundation recently awarded $5,000 to Family Promise Metrowest, a Natick-based interfaith partnership offering transitional shelter, meals and supportive case management to homeless families with children as they seek permanent housing.

Founded in 2008, Family Promise Metrowest currently involves 40 congregations and over 1800 volunteers throughout the Metrowest area. The program’s 15 host congregations furnish overnight lodging and meals for three to five families for one week every two to three months. The program’s Day Center and home base for the families in the program is at the former First Baptist Church in Natick.

“The Family Promise staff and the human service organizations they work with have helped more than 70 percent of the families in the program find permanent housing,” said Steven M. Sousa, executive vice president and chief operating officer of MutualOne Bank, and a MutualOne Charitable Foundation trustee. “We can’t think of a better way to build community and help local families get back on their feet.”
