Mission Statement

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

Did you know . .. In January 2017, the Houston County Board of Education identified over 300 homeless children in Pre-K through 12th grade. The national estimates of double that number (over 600) have been confirmed by our Family Promise experience the past four years. Inquiries, self-reports of families who have ben able to hid their homelessness, and our experience providing services to families have all shown that for every child in school there is at least one preschool age or otherwise uncounted. There are many ways to meet the needs of these potential 600+ children. Please join us as one agency eager to help families move from homelessness to self-sufficiency.
