The annual summer carnival will be from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Saturday, July 22, at First Baptist Church (14105 NW 39th Ave.)

Family Promise of Gainesville is a 501c3 nonprofit organization that provides shelter, meals and case management to homeless children and their families in Gainesville.
Housing instability can have a significant impact on children’s education and their overall school experience. Family Promise aims to minimize the negative impact of homelessness on students’ education and provide them with a more stable and nurturing learning environment.
