General information

Family Promise recognizes that poverty and homelessness are intricately connected problems that require a multifaceted response. We respond by integrating educational outreach, smart programming, effective policies, and the hands-on work of thousands of volunteers. Shelter: Our flagship program addresses family homelessness cost-effectively by utilizing existing community resources. Our guests are housed in warm, welcoming environments, typically congregational buildings with volunteers giving of their time, making meals, and sharing hospitality. They create and connect families to the community, lending their passion and expertise to help families get back on their feet. While the shelter program is centered on families experiencing homelessness, our model is a holistic response. There is simply not enough affordable housing in America; one in four renter households spend more than 50 percent of their income on rent and utilities. The majority of people we serve are helped by our two other major components: prevention and stabilization. Prevention: Family Promise Affiliates intercede on behalf of families in danger of losing their homes through a variety of programs and partnerships, providing rental assistance or landlord mediation, so families do not end up on the street. There is a tremendous benefit to families in avoiding the trauma of homelessness, but the savings to society are also considerable. Stabilization: the issues that cause homelessness are complex and often cannot be fully addressed while a family is in the shelter program. It is vital to provide continuing aftercare once families have moved back into housing. Affiliates offer a variety of supports like food donations, financial capability programs, permanent housing, and workforce development. Family Promise stabilization programs help families succeed today and create transformational opportunities for tomorrow.
