Thank you for visiting Family Promise of Lawton
Welcome to Family Promise of Lawton. My name is Edwina Reddick, your Network Director for Family Promise of Lawton, Inc. I look forward to working hand in hand with the hosting and supporting churches in our network and getting to know members of these congregations and other supporters of the Family Promise effort. Family Promise has such amazing potential and I, along with our Board of Trustees, am determined to see our organization succeed. I invite all who wish to help and support our homeless families to join me in making this the most effective organization possible. We are always looking for individual volunteers, additional hosting congregations, and supporting churches willing to help other hosting churches in providing the services needed to sustain our guests. Thank you for the opportunity to serve the Lawton community in this very meaningful and productive way. Please contact me at director@familypromiseoflawton.org if I can answer any question you may have about our organization.
