Our Impact

Family Promise allows communities to develop comprehensive, holistic solutions for families facing homelessness. Families come to us in crisis; our approach of coordinated compassion helps them rebuild their lives with new skills and ongoing support

CHANGING LIVES

Over the past 14 years, we have provided shelter, meals, case management, homelessness prevention and stabilization services to nearly 1500 family members.

KEEPING FAMILIES TOGETHER

We believe families should stay together — not be separated — during the most difficult times in their lives.

ACHIEVING SUCCESS

On average, 89% of families in our shelter program secure housing because of our intensive case management and community support.

ENGAGING VOLUNTEERS

We mobilize more than 550 dedicated volunteers annually who make a tremendous difference in families’ lives—and in their communities.

WORKING SMART

Our administrative costs are spread over both direct income and in-kind expenses, it is approximately 6% of the total budget.  We do our best to keep up with the ever-growing need and keep our operating costs low by utilizing talented volunteers and interns.
