Program Spotlight: Casting Lifelines
Family Promise of Southern Ocean County has four main programs to aid families in our area, one of which is the Casting Lifelines Referral Program. The referral program aims to provide aid to all who reach out to Family Promise. This includes eligible families, out of area families, and individuals who aren’t eligible for our programs.
Each time a phone call comes into our Day Center, our staff and volunteers fill out an intake form. If a caller is eligible, they begin the process of the Anchors to Stay Prevention Program or the Daymark Family Shelter Program. If a caller is not eligible or needs more immediate help, we are able to refer them to one or more other resources to provide them with the aid they need. This includes housing for veterans or disabled callers, shelters for domestic violence victims or youth, financial aid for overdue utility bills, food banks, legal services, healthcare resources, and more.
Other Family Promise of Southern Ocean County programs include:
