🌞Hello Summer, Hello Adventures!🌞


Summer is a season of joy, relaxation, and exploration, especially for our little ones! Yet, for families experiencing homelessness served by Family Promise Cobb, summer can feel more like climbing a mountain than riding a wave.


The simple pleasures of summer—movie tickets🎥, pool passes🏊‍♀️, and trips to kid-friendly museums🖼️—might seem like small luxuries. However, these activities remain out of reach for many of our families. For a child who's been through a lot, these small endeavors could make a world of difference.


Introducing the Summer of Smiles Campaign


Today, we are excited to launch our Summer of Smiles campaign! We are calling on you, our awesome and generous supporters, to donate entertainment gift cards for our guest families. These gift cards will help create fun-filled, unforgettable summer memories for the kiddos, giving their families a much-deserved break.


Ending homelessness in Cobb County is not just about providing homes; it's about providing experiences, opportunities, and the chance for families—and especially children🧒—to create happy, normal summer memories.


How You Can Help


Your generous support can help us bring joy to our families this summer. Here are a few ways you can contribute:

  • Donate Gift Cards: Entertainment gift cards for movies, pools, the zoo, and museums can provide much-needed fun and relaxation.

  • Share Our Campaign: Spread the word about our Summer of Smiles campaign on social media and within your community.

  • Get Involved: Volunteer with Family Promise Cobb to help us organize and distribute these summer experiences.


To make a donation and bring a little more sun, laughter, and smiles to our little ones' summer, visit Summer of Smiles Donation Page.


Why It Matters


For the children in our program, these experiences are more than just a way to pass the time—they are a way to heal, grow, and feel normal in a world that has been anything but. Your support helps us provide a holistic approach to ending homelessness, one that includes not just housing but also joy, hope, and opportunity.


Let’s work together to ensure that every child we serve can look back on this summer with fond memories of laughter, adventure, and smiles. Thank you for your continued support and generosity!


Here's to a summer filled with smiles, laughter, and unforgettable adventures
