We bring the faith community together to help families regain their housing, their independence, and their dignity.
What We Do
A mother loses her job, a father is kept from working by an injury, a family is forced from their home by fire or natural disaster. Health care costs soar, public transportation is underfunded, affordable housing is almost impossible to find. These are the reasons why families now make up 40 percent of the homeless population, and why one out of every four homeless people is a child.
In response to this crisis, Family Promise brings the faith community together to help families regain their housing, their independence, and their dignity. Family Promise is a partnership of congregations within a community helping families who are facing homelessness. It offers an opportunity for volunteers of all faiths to reduce homelessness and transform lives.
Poverty is a Complex Problem
We recognize that poverty is a complex problem that requires a multifaceted response. We respond by integrating educational outreach, smart programming, effective policies, and the hands-on work of thousands of volunteers.
A Community Helping
We provide food, shelter, and support services for homeless families. We provide advice and advocacy for at-risk families to prevent them from becoming homeless. And we educate people about poverty and the means to combat it.
