The Kickoff of Jerry’s Promise

Burbank Housing Corporation, Family Promise of the Verdugos, and the City of Burbank have collaborated to acquire, rehabilitate, and create a transitional housing property for situationally homeless families. 

Our newly acquired property will be named in loving memory of Dr. Jerry Jones, a long-time BHC board member who recently passed. Jerry’s Promise will provide transitional housing to homeless families in Family Promise’s Back-To-Work Program. Burbank Housing Corporation will own and maintain the property while Family Promise of the Verdugos provides services like meals, job development, and financial literacy.

Our Partner, Family Promise of the Verdugos, also joined us at the Kickoff

On August 16, 2018, our staff, board of directors, and partners celebrated the start of the rehabilitation process at our Kickoff event. With the help of BHC, Jerry’s Promise will soon be transformed into a safe, attractive, and service-enriched residential property for homeless families!
