What We Do

Family Promise brings shelter, meals, and support services to families without homes. Family Promise is a cost-efficient, effective community response to family homelessness.

  1. Host/Support Congregations

    The hosting of families rotates weekly among the Host Congregations in the Network. Each host congregation provides overnight stays, three meals a day, and caring hospitality. Volunteers provide the meals, supplies and support.

  2. Day Center

    Guests use a local Day Center where the Family Promise Executive Director and Case Manager provide case management services. There, guests pursue employment, tend pre-school children, shower, and do laundry. The day center provides guests with a mailing address and a base for housing and employment searches. Some guests are employed during the day, while older children attend school.

  3. Transportation

    Our Family Promise van transports guests between the host congregation and the Day Center. Family Promise also uses the van to provide school pick-up and drop-off to any children who do not have any other transportation options.

  4. Social Service Agencies

    Family Promise works in collaboration with other Social Service agencies. Local social service agencies refer families to the program and may also help guests find or provide housing, jobs, and other needed services.

  5. Volunteers

    Volunteers are essential to our success and provide a wide range of services like cooking and serving meals, playing with children or helping them with homework, interacting with guests with respect and compassion, and providing overnight security.
