Our mission is to mobilize community congregations that partner with social service agencies to end homelessness, one family at a time.

Did you know . . . . . at a February 2015 meeting of the House of Representatives in Washington DC, the Homelessness Caucus was informed that 2.5 million children – that’s one in thirty in the U.S.—were homeless during the 2012-2013 school year. This “America’s Youngest Outcasts” report is based on a count of homeless students done by the Department of Education. Increases in homeless children were counted in 31 states and overall the number of homeless students increased 8% over the previous school year.
Kroger Community Rewards Program
Any time is a great time to enroll in the Kroger Community Reward s program. Customers and associates can designate reward points to organizations of their choice by using their Kroger Plus Card. Just remember to re-enroll August 1 through August 31, 2016. Check the bottom of your receipts...it will affirm Kroger is making a donation to Family Promise with every purchase.
Our Family Promise Families (current and graduates) work hard to make sure their children have all their needs met and that they maintain stability. Many parents have to report to work by 5:00 am while others work the night shift. These are productive families in our community. We are so proud of everything our guests have accomplished and how they continue to grow.
