Transitional Housing For the Homeless is a Project of Family Promise of Midland
Family Promise of Midland has been in Midland since 2010 to help end homelessness one family at a time.
According to CBS 7, "Developing Dreams" is the organization's latest project to help families with homelessness.
The complex has five duplexes with a playground and basketball court along with storage units.
“This gives them an opportunity to come in, have a home, work with a case manager to help raise their self-sufficiency and get on the right road and never look back to homelessness,” said Tom Miller, Executive Director of Family Promise of Midland.
Family Promise of Midland can house 20 families with the housing complex.
Tom Miller said there was a need in Midland to not only help homeless individuals but to help homeless families too.
“There are a lot of excellent non-profits in Midland that assist single women with children, but there aren’t any that really assist single dads or two-parent families. We do all three, single moms, single dads, and two-parent families,” said Miller.
The project began in 2018 at a cost of $6.8 million but the original completion date was pushed back because of COVID-19 and the complex will now be opening in February 2022.
“This is an exciting project to come to fruition. It isn’t about Family Promise, it’s about the community of Midland, Texas, taking care of its own and taking care of those families in need,” said Miller.
