Family Promise partnered with the StoryCorps Mobile Tour in 2019 to give members of the Family Promise network the opportunity to share their stories. One of those stories came from Sandy and Ashley, a mother and daughter, who spoke of living homeless for two and a half years. When Ashley’s youth pastor connected them with Family Promise, the program changed their lives. It’s a story of courage, survival and, ultimately, the power of connection.
This StoryCorps story originally aired on November 29, 2019. Listen to it here: A Mother And Daughter On Homelessness, Humility And A $6-A-Week Grocery Budget.
