Pickleball Tournament

About This Event

On May 18, 2024 Family Promise of Greater Orlando will be hosting their first annual Serving Hope Pickleball Tournament. The pickleball tournament will be held at ClearOne Sports. Your participation will enable us to continue advocating for and bolstering awareness of unhoused people in Central FL.

Homelessness is not an issue in faraway places, it's happening right in our neighborhood. Housing insecurity increased sharply during the pandemic and with the steady rise in rental rates families with children were hit the hardest. Children should sleep in a safe and loving environment, and Family Promise of Greater Orlando is proud to remain a resource families can rely on. There is still a lot of work to be done in Central FL, and we need your help to make sure that no child sleeps in a car.  

Family Promise of Greater Orlando is an organization that fills in those gaps by providing families with prevention services such as rental assistance, shelter if the family is unhoused, intense case management to guide a family back to self-sufficiency, among many other services. When the obstacle of housing insecurity is removed, children experience increased academic achievement in school and increase opportunities for success in their lives.

 

We look forward to seeing you on the court!
