At this free public event, Family Promise of San Gabriel Valley (FPSGV) will recognize those who have generously supported FPSGV’s efforts to solve family homelessness throughout the community. The featured guest speaker will be William Huang, Director of Housing Services for the City of Pasadena. All attendees are welcome to share ideas on possible solutions to the homelessness issue in the San Gabriel Valley. One discussion topic will be the challenges and opportunities related to affordable housing, which is made possible through government programs that subsidize the cost of rent.
FPSGV is a non-sectarian organization that partners with non-partisan groups, faith-based agencies and a school district to support families facing homelessness. FPSGV has provided over 16,000 bed nights and over 48,000 meals to families, keeping 150 children off the streets. Of the families who have participated in FPSGV’s program, over 65% have secured permanent housing and 78% of their adult clients have secured stable employment.
