Family Promise's mission is to help homeless and low-income families achieve sustainable independence through a community-based response.


Poverty is a complex problem. It won’t yield to a simple solution. It requires an integrated approach that reaches beyond immediate needs. They initiate coordinated local efforts that bring communities together to help homeless families regain their housing, their independence, and their dignity.


The issue can seem overwhelming and individuals may feel powerless to change the lives of people in poverty. As Family Promise volunteers, more than 200,000 people have found a way.


Working together, they provide temporary housing, meals, and services to more than 125,000 family members annually. They mentor at-risk families. They teach financial literacy. They help find jobs and affordable housing. They create programs to meet specific needs in their communities. And they advocate for public policies that alleviate poverty and promote the economic stability of low-income families.
