Opening soon to transform the lives of twice as many children and their families.
After Yarelis and Alreise lost their jobs, they had to leave their apartment. But as a homeless family of four — husband, wife, and two children — it was hard for them to find a place where they could stay together.
They found refuge at Family Promise®. “I felt secure,” Yarelis said. “We didn’t feel overwhelmed anymore. We felt like a family there.” Within two months, they found jobs and an apartment, where they are today.
Sadly, not all children experiencing homelessness have this support. One of every 5 people experiencing homelessness is a child. Just one night of homelessness impacts a child academically and emotionally.
This is what makes Family Promise® unique. We keep homeless families together in their time of need, and we’re the most effective.
Soon, we will open our new Hospitality Center to fill this urgent need.
Located in the Richardson Park area, our Hospitality Center will provide temporary shelter for families with children and double our current capacity. To make it successful, we need your support. Join us in our movement to end homelessness!
Our 1,500+ volunteers from 40+ congregations make our current programs successful. Here’s why they volunteer with Family Promise®:
