What We Do

Family Promise of Northern New Castle County helps local communities coordinate their compassion to address the root causes of family homelessness. We address the issue holistically, providing diversion services to divert families from shelter altogether, shelter and case management when they become homeless, and stabilization programs once they have secured housing to ensure they remain independent. We tap existing local resources to empower families towards economic stability. Families come to us in crisis; we help them rebuild their lives with new skills and ongoing support.

The Hospitality Center

A static site that provides shelter for up to 6 families/20 individuals at any given time. Volunteers provide meals and hospitality to families daily.

The Hospitality Network

Our rotational shelter program where we partner with local congregations to provide shelter, meals and hospitality for families in need. Provides shelter for 4 families/14 individuals at any given time.

Pathway to Diversion
