Family Promise Invites You to Albuquerque Christmas Homes Tour

There is an exciting new homes tour this holiday season! The first ever Family Promise of Albuquerque Christmas Homes Tour will be offered the weekend of Dec 6-7: Saturday, Dec 6, 10 am to 4 pm; Sunday, Dec 7, 12 noon to 4 pm, and will feature four lovely homes. Tickets are $20 and can be purchased online via this link, or via cash or check only at the Family Promise office at First Congregational UCC, 2801 Lomas NE (in the basement) or at the Chico’s store at Academy & Wyoming.

Family Promise of Albuquerque provides housing and case management to homeless families, empowering them to achieve self-sufficiency within 3 months’ participation in the program. The Family Promise national conference was held in Chicago in October and hosted staff, volunteers and board members from affiliates in 41 states, offering workshops, roundtables and the keynote speech by Dr. Martin Marty.

Donations for this event are welcomed. Click here to make a donation. (This is the same link for ticket purchases). For every $50 donated, a Family Essentials Kit will be purchased for a family entering the Family Promise program. The kit will include basic items, including razors, toothbrushes, and shower items.
