Our Story

Our mission is to help homeless and low-income families achieve sustainable independence.

Here in Green County, members of a local congregation who were part of a book club were reading a book that involved homelessness. After recognizing homeless individuals around our community, they wanted to do something about it, so they took action. A charter was signed in November 2011 to establish a local chapter of Family Promise here in our local community.

Since November 2011, Family Promise of Green County has served over 283 families, a total of 673 people of which 331 (50%) were children.

Last year alone (2020), Family Promise of Green County served 45 families, a total of 105 people, half of which were children.
