BELOIT—The Family Promise of Greater Beloit is preparing to welcome families to its new home at 1006 Bluff St., after making strides in renovating the new facility which was formerly St. John Lutheran School.
The former school now has multiple living room areas, a kitchen area, a learning center room with computers, suite areas with multiple rooms families can stay in, four decorated bathrooms, and more.
Executive Director Tammie King-Johnson told the Daily News that Family Promise celebrates 20 years of providing emergency shelter to homeless families this year. Though King-Johnson has only been on board for 90 days, she actually was the founding executive director at the start of the shelter’s inception.
