Family Promise of South Sarasota County helps homeless and low-income families achieve sustainable independence through a community-based response. UUCOV hosts these families for eight weeks a year at our Aster Linder House. Our Congregation members provide food and staff the house when families are in residence. We do simple but immeasurably important things. We talk to guests. We listen to them. We treat them with respect. Volunteers are often a source of hope, when hope is lost.
