Morris-Baker Supports Family Promise’s Mission of Serving Homeless Families
Morris-Baker Funeral Home and Cremation Services recently donated funding to Family Promise of Greater Johnson City (FPJC), which helps homeless and low-income families achieve sustainable independence.
“A co-worker, who has since passed way, volunteered for Family Promise. I will always remember him sharing with me how the experience changed his view of homelessness,” says Preston McKee, president and owner of Morris-Baker. “We are grateful to be able to support this truly unique agency.”
Morris-Baker is committed to actively participating in and supporting charitable organizations that help the Johnson City community. FPJC provides vital services to our area utilizing a network of faith congregations and community agencies to promote a collaborative response for homeless families with children.
In particular, this response allows homeless families to remain together as a family while addressing the challenges that confront them in obtaining housing. These families receive counseling, access to a host of services (e.g. job skills training, etc.), and opportunities for growth with issues related to each family’s specific needs.
FPJC is affiliated with Family Promise, a national organization with more than 200 Affiliates in 43 states.
Morris-Baker has served the Johnson City community for over 100 years and is a third-generation, family-owned and -operated funeral home.
