Family Promise

Founded in 1986, Family Promise helps low-income families nationwide achieve lasting independence and to redress the underlying causes of poverty and homelessness. We work to accomplish our mission through four program areas: Interfaith Hospitality Networks (IHNs) provide shelter, meals, and comprehensive support services to homeless families: Family Mentoring helps prevent homelessness by training volunteers to be advisors and advocates to low-income families; Just Neighbors, an interactive educational program, raises awareness of the root causes of poverty and homelessness as the first step in establishing community-based responses; and Community Initiatives foster local IHN outgrowth programs, such as transitional housing, job training, childcare, and literacy.
