Family Promise Receives Walmart Community Grant

Family Promise Receives Walmart Community Grant

The Walmart Corporation and the local Laramie Walmart store have awarded a Community Grant to Family Promise of Albany County, a non-profit organization that provides safe and secure shelter to homeless families with children, coupled with educational support to assist them in transitioning to stable housing and employment.

Homelessness exists in Albany County, and over 50 children have been identified as homeless by the Albany County School District. A dedicated working group of local citizens spent two years getting the program off the ground, recruiting churches and other community organizations to provide shelter and support to Laramie’s homeless families.

Family Promise of Albany County is proud to announce that its doors will open to the first homeless families in March 2018. This would not be possible without the financial support of the community and Family Promise of Albany County wishes to thank the Walmart Corporation and the local Walmart store for their support in helping the most vulnerable of our citizens.
