The BreadBasket Contact: Sue Comstock (Member)
Mission: to provide a free hot meal to those individuals who cannot afford one and who otherwise would go hungry if these meals were not provided. There is no intent to provide meals for those who are financially able to pay for their own. However, we do not question, nor is there a needs test to ensure the recipients are in need. We simply trust the integrity of those taking advantage of this service and that their financial situation fits the mission of The Breadbasket.

Family Promise Contact: Sue Comstock (Member)
Family Promise of Lee County (FPLC) is a program based on the model and principles established by the Interfaith Hospitality Network. Family Promise is a non-profit organization that provides assistance to homeless families in Lee County. FPLC is successful due to the fact that local congregations work together as partners and provide an outreach ministry focusing on the needs of the homeless families in our community.
Family Promise of Lee County helps homeless families transform their lives by providing emergency shelter and family stability services, such as employment and life-skills programs, through which families can quickly obtain and sustain stable housing. We keep all types of families together during the crisis of homelessness and provide individualized blends of services during and after their Family Promise stay to help them achieve long-term family stability.
Family Promise utilizes the idea of cost-effective mobilization of community resources. Seventy-five percent of families achieve lasting independence at a third the cost of traditional shelters.
