Testimonials

I’m staying here because my kids are busy having so much fun with the volunteers that they don’t even know they’re homeless. — Becky

Who Are Our Neighbors Without Homes?

- Folks just like us — mothers, fathers, children.

- An under-insured family loses everything in a fire. Their only option is to move into a hotel, but they can’t afford it forever.

- A working mom loses employment because of health restrictions. Now, she and her two kids get behind on rent and are running out of money quickly.

Why Family Promise?

- Families are the fastest growing segment of the homeless population nationwide.

- 20% of America’s kids live in poverty.

- 75% of our families get back on track to their own homes within 90 days.
