A family fun center in Tifton is trying to put smiles on the faces of homeless children.

BAM Family Fun Center has teamed up with the Family Promise program to open its doors to homeless families.

Family promise helps homeless families get on their feet by pairing them up with local churches.

When the families stay with the churches, the family fun center wants to give the kids something fun to do. 

"They can play video games and they are just in a safe, fun and clean environment that they are not accustomed to and probably would not have had the opportunity to do if it had not been for BAM," said co-owner, Phillip Moody.

There are about 14 families lined up with the program right now. 

They can enjoy the center free of charge.
