Craft Visits Kiwanis

Kristi Craft, executive director of Pam’s Promise in Crawfordsville, presented at the Crawfordsville Kiwanis Club’s meeting. Pam’s Promise is a non-profit transitional housing program offering a variety of support services for Montgomery County homeless women and their children and homeless men. Their goal is to help clients become self-sufficient within three to six months. In 2018 Pam’s Promise provided services to 45 women, 73 children and three men with an overall successful completion rate of 80 percent. As a transitional home, clients must start working within seven days of their acceptance into the program and must do a minimum of five job searches a day until they get a job. Clients who do not get a job providing 40 hours or more complete their responsibilities through other chores or workshops within the program. Pam’s Promise currently has four locations and is hoping to expand over the next few years. They rely solely on volunteers and private funding without any government assistance.
