MEET OUR FAMILY.

Moving from stereotype to story.

CHARMONIX

GUEST BECOMES VOLUNTEER

On Mondays and Thursdays you’ll find her running the reception desk with a smile and a snarky sense of humor.

 

But it wasn’t a year ago that she and her family were guests at Open Doors — Family Promise of Spokane's 24/7 walk-in emergency shelter for homeless families.

MELINDA

ALL GONE IN A MOMENT

“I had twenty thousand dollars in savings. The funeral was twenty-two thousand.”

Melinda was a self-proclaimed superwoman: A single mother of Catholic private school kids, she worked two jobs to care for her boys and had single-handedly ran her home of twenty years.

BRITTANY

ALL BECAUSE OF EVICTION

In a corner of the shelter, on the floor by the two windows, sits Brittany and her two babies. Her youngest babbles on the floor next to her while he attempts to crawl. Her older son sits in her lap while she patiently wipes peanut butter from his fingers.

HILARY

BEHIND THE SCENES

“I knew while earning my degree that I wasn’t meant to work for a big corporation or for-profit company. I wanted to use my skills, talents, and what I was learning to serve a non-profit or a smaller guy, an organization that was doing work on the ground to help others rather than help themselves.”

STACY

FROM HOMELESSNESS TO STAFF

Stacy is a self-proclaimed mama bear. She has an uncanny ability to see through drama and deceit but will just as quickly wrap you in a hug. As a staff member at the Open Doors shelter, there’s a reason Stacy is so good at her job: Three years ago, she was in the same position as the residents she serves.

HAILEY & MICHAEL

A GRADUATE'S PERSPECTIVE

"The beginning of it was terrifying. You feel like a horrible person having to put our kids through that, it is not fair. It was February, pouring rain and we were cold and soaked when we arrived at Family Promise’s Open Doors Shelter."
