Your donation to Family Promise of Greater Houston County is an investment in helping local families and in building a stronger community. 

The return on your investment is the knowledge that families can stay together in a time of crisis, gain self-esteem and life skills, and find safe, affordable housing options. Our communities benefit by coming together to lift families out of a crisis and see them gain stability and self-sufficiency. 

Family Promise of Greater Houston County is a 501(c)3 non-profit charitable organization and any contribution you make is tax-deductible to the full extent of the law.

Give Time

Volunteer at our Host Churches 
Congregational volunteers are the heart of the Family Promise program. They provide hospitality, fellowship and friendship to guest families. Volunteers lead activities for adults and children, stay overnight, drive the van, and prepare and serve the evening meal. Contact Family Promise for information on how to volunteer at a partner church.
Volunteer Your Talent 
Put your special skills to use by teaching classes in parenting, budgeting, nutrition, computer skills, or anything else you can dream up! Or, provide free professional services such as haircuts, automotive repair, legal consultation, medical treatment, etc. for our guests.
Volunteer as a Family Mentor
Low-income families face enormous stresses. The Family Promise Mentoring Program is designed to help families overcome these stresses as they work toward becoming a self-sustainable family once again. In the Family Promise Mentoring Program, economically vulnerable families are matched with trained volunteer mentors who work with them, one-on-one, over an extended period of time for approximately one hour each week. Mentors help individual families define and meet goals to:
• Develop life skills
• Connect with community resources
• Improve their housing and employment situations
• Nurture and support their children
Mentors build committed, trusting relationships. They listen. They offer understanding and respect. They help families overcome challenges and disappointments and celebrate successes.
Volunteer as an Office Angel 
Would you consider joining this exciting ministry by volunteering a few hours each week? Volunteers are needed to serve as Office Angels & Day Center Hosts at the Day Center M-F 8:00 am-4:30 pm and some weekends.

Van Drivers are needed for two shifts, 6-8 am and 4:30–6:30 pm every day
Volunteer to Move Furniture 
Help us pick up furniture donations for our Home Again Program and help move Family Promise guests into their new homes. These services allow guests to start out on the right foot and allow volunteers to be a part of a joyful occasion and to see the result of our mission.
Volunteer Your Home Repair Skills 
Our Day Centers serve as the base of operations for families as they try to get back on their feet. Keeping these houses in good repair is important to providing a stable environment. We are always seeking volunteers who can do light maintenance and repair work at our Day Center.
