Family Promise was founded by volunteers and operates at 1/3 the cost of traditional homeless shelters due to the tremendous support of volunteers.  The backbone of Family Promise is volunteers!  The mission is transforming the lives of families experiencing homelessness and poverty in Hendricks County, by providing housing, stability services and homelessness prevention, with the goal of achieving sustainable independence.

 

156 school-aged children in Hendricks County were homeless during the 2017-18 school year.

3-5 families call Family Promise each day homeless and needing help.

Kiwanis Club of Avon:

Kiwanis_logoPat has been a proud member of Kawanis since 2001. Kiwanis Club of Avon began in 1997 when a few people in the Avon area wanted to create a group that was dedicated to the mission of helping children.  Over the years, the club has held many fundraisers, including pancake breakfasts, paper bundling project, Professional Exhibitor Tent at the Avon Heritage Festival, 50/50 Raffle at O’Reilly Raceway Park and many other events.  We help out in the community in a variety of ways, including sponsored youth programs.

 

Kiwanis Mission:
Kiwanians are volunteers changing the world through service to children and communities. Kiwanis members help shelter the homeless, feed the hungry, mentor the disadvantaged, and care for the sick. They develop youth as leaders, build playgrounds, raise funds for pediatric research, and much more. No problem is too big or too small. Why? Because working together, members achieve what one person cannot accomplish alone. When you give a child a chance to learn, experience, dream, and succeed, great things happen!

As Kiwanis clubs and members, we see it everyday!
