Family Promise allows communities to develop comprehensive, holistic solutions for families facing homelessness. Families come to us in crisis; our approach of coordinated compassion helps them rebuild their lives with new skills and ongoing support
Family Promise of Green County celebrates our 10th anniversary in 2021. Our local affiliate was founded in November 2011, and since that time, we have served over 300 families, a total of over 700 people, half of which have been children. Our three-tiered model seeks to prevent families from becoming homeless, provide shelter to those who need it, and empower families to independence through stabilization.
Nationally, over the past 30+ years, we have provided shelter, meals, case management, homelessness prevention and stabilization services to nearly 1 million family members.
KEEPING FAMILIES TOGETHER
We believe families should stay together — not be separated — during the most difficult times in their lives.
Nationwide, more than 88% of families in our shelter program secure housing because of our intensive case management and community support.
Collectively across all the Family Promise Affiliates, we mobilize more than 200,000 dedicated volunteers who make a tremendous difference in families’ lives—and in their communities.
For every dollar invested, we return $3 in donated goods and services.
Our volunteers don’t stop at shelter, meals, and support services. Nationwide, we have created more than 1,700 programs for housing, homelessness prevention, health care, life skills, and mentoring, among others.
