“Even though our local economy is improving, the numbers of local homeless children and families in the Santa Clarita Valley continue to rise,” said Chris Najarro, executive director of Family Promise of SCV. “In the first four months of 2016 alone we have already assisted a total of 10 families through our temporary shelter program, 10 household units (individuals and families) through our in-kind donation center and four household units (individuals and families) with three-day emergency hotel shelter. That’s a total of 88 individuals, including 49 minor children in all programs, combined.”
