BAUUC is proud to be an active partner in the interfaith organization called Family Promise of Clear Creek. Family Promise of Clear Creek mobilizes the faith community to empower homeless families to achieve lasting independence. The program’s goal is to help transition families away from homelessness to permanent housing by providing a safe environment that includes shelter, meals and hospitality; by offering supportive services to aid in the search for employment and housing and by organizing congregations to reach out with compassion to our families in need. To learn more about Family Promise, see their website at https://www.ccfamilypromise.org/

Because of the work of dozens of our church volunteers in 2017, 15 families received shelter and support services, including 19 adults and 37 children. BAUUC is one of 16 religious communities in southwest Houston participating in this program which is instrumental in successfully transitioning families in our community from homelessness to stability.
