Christopher Godios, Partner and Attorney at Smith Godios Sorensen Inc, recently became the new Board Chair at Family Promise. Prior to becoming Board Chair, Chris served as a member of the Family Promise Housing/Program Committee from 2017 – 2019, the Bylaws/Ad Hoc Committee in 2019, and was Treasurer/Finance Committee Chair from 2020-2021.
Family Promise works to rescue families from homelessness, placing them in temporary housing together and preparing them to enter a stable rental situation or even home ownership through the new “Survive to Thrive” program.
“I sought board membership at Family Promise because of its mission to keep families, including pets, together during periods of homelessness. I was also very impressed with the mentoring and social work services that Family Promise provides to its families. I saw this organization as one that not only temporarily helps homeless families get by, but one that helps families develop the tools and find the resources to be successful on their own. From my first meeting, I could see the dedication and enthusiasm that the Executive Director, Jeff Wilhite, had toward achieving Family Promise’s goals and mission. Knowing that Family Promise had great leadership and a great mission made me want to be a part of this organization.”
