Our mission is to empower families with children experiencing homelessness to achieve sustainable independence for a more promising future.

With support from our community, 30 interfaith congregations, and hundreds of volunteers, we are able to provide shelter, food, and support to help families in our community that need it the most. If you are currently homeless or could be, please contact us.

Family Promise is designed to work with families experiencing homelessness. You are eligible for our assistance as long as there are children under 18 years old in the household - even if you are working to regain custody or you are pregnant with your first child. Guests must pass a criminal background check showing no violent crimes and commit to program guidelines, including being drug-free.

We help families work toward their goals by locating resources, providing job and educational support, assisting with financial planning, and helping locate affordable housing. Families who participate in the program agree to work with staff to develop a plan for regaining stability.

Once in the program, families will spend their nights in either a hotel room or a host congregation's facilities, staying in each facility for one week at a time. Families will stay together and be served dinner each night by the host congregation. In the morning after breakfast, we will transport families to our day center. Children will attend school and adults will work towards individualized goals. They will then return to the host site (or hotel room) in the evening.

The length of a stay typically lasts about 60 days with a maximum program length of 90 days.
