GALLATIN COUNTY — Family Promise is a non-profit organization working to end homelessness in Gallatin County. Family Promise’s mission is to empower families with children who are experiencing homelessness. Families in the program are provided with transitional housing until they complete the program. They are also taught the necessary skills to help them get back on their feet.
Things like money and food are common donations received by Family Promise. However, on April 13, Family Promise received an anonymous call from someone planning to donate their house to the program.
Christel Chvilicek, executive director of Family Promise, said she was completely shocked when she heard the news of the donation.
“Especially when we’re in this housing market, and you think of every house being close to $850,000 dollars,” said Chvilicek. “It’s crazy that someone would choose to give that away instead of reaping the benefit from that cash.”
