A Cañon City mom gets a place to call home


CAÑON CITY, Colo. — A single mom and her kids get a much needed helping hand Wednesday, thanks to an organization called “Family Promise”.

After leaving a bad relationship, Sara, a mom of two young children, struggled to find employment and experienced near homelessness.

This week, she attended a ribbon-cutting for a brand new home to call her own.

Sara says has a job, her rent payment is cut in half and the kids have their own bedroom.

“I actually feel lighter it’s crazy, it’s hard, but it’s something that my kids deserve,” Sara said.

Family Promise said they have helped nearly 1 million people in the last three decades.
