The Family Promise Network
What is the Family Promise Network?
The Family Promise Network is a program offering temporary shelter and support to working families with children who are experiencing homelessness.
After long consideration, we have decided that we will discontinue the congregational Network model. At this point, we will continue to provide housing in hotels. We are working on a longer-term solution which will provide a permanent location for families to stay during their time with Family Promise. Read more
Once a family is safely sheltered, immense pressure is lifted. With the on-going support and guidance of Family Promise staff, families begin to set goals and commit to overcoming obstacles to self-sufficiency. Services are tailored to each family, offering opportunities for personal, financial, and career growth.
Case management is a key element of this program. Along with meeting with their case manager regularly, all families are required to participate in a mandatory savings plan, financial literacy classes, empowerment workshops, parenting support, skills assessments, workplace readiness skills training, and a youth literacy initiative.
