We are FAMILY PROMISE of NewRock
Transforming the lives of homeless families. Because every child deserves a home.
We are a local response to a national crisis.
In the United States today, one child out of five lives in poverty. Families with children make up 35% of the people in this country who experience homelessness. Our mission is to help homeless and low-income families achieve sustainable independence through a community-based response in Newton and Rockdale county. Family Promise of NewRock is making it’s way back to serving Newton & Rocdake Counties… With your help & support we know that we will be back to serving the homeless local families very soon. Since November of 2011, Family Promise of NewRock has provided housing and resources to 210 individuals, including 138 children, from 55 families facing homelessness from our community.
