Sparklight Awards $3,500 to Family Promise of Odessa


March 10, 2023 – Odessa, Texas Sparklight®, a leading broadband communications provider, recently awarded a $3,500 grant to Family Promise of Odessa (FPO) through the company’s Charitable Giving Fund. Twenty-eight non-profit organizations across the company’s 24-state footprint received grants totaling more than $110,000 during the company’s most recent award period.


Family Promise of Odessa is a non-profit agency that partners with local churches and approximately 200 volunteers to provide shelter, food, necessities and support services to unhoused families with children, with the goal of achieving lasting self-sufficiency. Family Promise plans to use the Sparklight grant in support of its Transition to Independence program.


“Transition to Independence is the primary activity and program of Family Promise of Odessa,” said FPO Executive Director Kara Evenson-Dorethy. “It is based on families becoming financially stable and moving into homes of their own within one year of acceptance to the overnight stay program. Our mission is to assist homeless families in becoming self-sufficient by providing support they need to survive, thus the Transition to independence program is well-aligned with our mission.” 

The Charitable Giving Fund, which annually awards nearly $250,000 in grants to local 501(c)(3) nonprofit organizations served by the Cable One family of brands (Sparklight®, Fidelity Communications, Hargray, ValuNet Fiber and CableAmerica), concentrates support in the following priority areas:
