Thursday night, Oct. 3, 2019 Home Sweet Home

Thanks for celebrating 25 years with us!

Dear Friends,

Thursday night was 25 years to the day of Family Promise welcoming its first family who called for help. Together with you, we honored that moment by raising a record $120,000 to see that the mission continues to help families still today!

Thank you so much for your generosity, and for your ongoing partnership. As the shelter program has recently expanded from serving 45 families in 2016 to a projected 70 families this year, that increased funding is necessary to provide the same quality of service to all families we help throughout the year. It also allows the program to consider exciting expansions that Mike Chapuran, the executive director, will be sharing with us next week (stay tuned!).

So many people came together to make last night possible, and we sincerely thank every single one of you. However, we would like to especially recognize Tara Croley and Joseph Wier for sharing their powerful testimony of tragedy and triumph. They are why we exist. With your support, Family Promise will continue to walk with them for the next two years.

On behalf of all the volunteers on the Home Sweet Home Committee, it was truly a joy to see so many come together to help—and have a great time doing so.

Thank you for making the Thursday night, and the last 25 years, such a success!

With deep gratitude,

Kenda Resler Friend and John Chambers
Chairpersons, Home Sweet Home Committee
Board members, Family Promise of Greater Indianapolis

P.S. Did you accidentally take home a pewter cake stand with scalloped edges from your dessert? If so, please email It was an item loaned to the event by a volunteer and has an important sentimental value; we are really needing to get it back! Thanks.

Our deep gratitude also goes to the 2019 event sponsors:
