Our approach of coordinated compassion helps families rebuild their lives with new skills and ongoing support from our team of volunteers and case management from the FPTV staff.
Family Promise of Tualatin Valley has grown significantly since we opened our doors in March of 2019. In our first nine months of operation, we ran a rotational shelter program which provided shelter and housing navigation services to 13 families, totaling 52 individuals. Ten of these families moved into housing. Many found employment during their stay us. Children stayed in their schools and in their community. During this same time period, we provided over 900 referrals and connections to local services.
After the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic, we changed our model to a motel-based program and expanded our capacity significantly. In 2020, we provided 6,165 bed nights to houseless individuals in our community. 182 individuals received prevention, diversion, and stabilization help. We served 18,000+ meals. Finally, 87% of our guests left program and entered into stable housing. This percentage demonstrates the efficacy of the skilled case management and wrap-around services that define our approach.
In 2021, we further expanded our impact, as seen in the graphic at the top of your screen. We're proud of our work addressing the needs in our community and are working hard to continue these successes every day.
In 2021, our amazing volunteers donated 1,500+ hours of their time to support our programs and engage with our guests. Our volunteer base includes a network of 18 churches and civic organizations.
