Family Promise offers shelter, living supplies, job readiness and dignity for families facing homelessness, keeping the household members, even pets, together through this difficult time.
The number of families in Summit County served by Family Promise continues to grow, and now, the agency has teamed up with Community Support Services (CSS) to launch a storage service to better sustain its operations.
Community and Family Storage has opened its doors at 111 E. Voris St., and the social enterprise offers an enclosed warehouse for residents to store their belongings, along with job training for clients of both agencies.
The facility has a covered loading dock to serve customers regardless of weather conditions, and the units are movable stackable boxes. The building is heated and equipped for fire prevention and is alarmed for secure storage, and the location is ideal for downtown businesses and organizations.
One hundred percent of the rental fees go back into the facility’s operations. The storage business adjoins Family Promise’s day center, which offers a laundry room, computer room and kennels for pets of displaced families.
Community Support Services offers comprehensive behavioral and physical healthcare services to Summit County adults living with severe and persistent mental illnesses who are in need of on-going support to allow the individuals to live independently in the community.
