How You Can Help
Your monetary gift or your time as a volunteer makes a big difference to the families we serve. You can make a secure online donation, one time or monthly, that will help our guest families as they work toward financial stability in a permanent home. A monthly donation of as little as $14 a month helps us fulfill our mission. Our organization simply would not work without the support of our volunteers.

You also can help by supporting our partner, Hand Up Thrift Store. The HUT accepts used clothing, household items, furniture, etc., and sells them at thrift-store prices. Proceeds from these sales benefit Family Promise of Acadiana and other local nonprofit organizations through annual financial donations from The HUT. Learn more by visiting The HUT online.
