Family Promise of Effingham County recently held a ribbon cutting officially dedicating its day center on Laurel Street in Springfield. Joined by Effingham board members, executive director Ashley Moore cut the ribbon as part of the local activities for Family Promise Week.

Family Promise uses the day center in its mission to help homeless families. Local churches host a family for a week at a time, and the day center provides showers, closet space, a washer and dryer and an office area for the family to look online for employment or housing.
