Family Promise understands the needs of vulnerable families. So, we offer innovative programs — such as tenancy preparation, financial literacy, and virtual career pathway training — to address them in a cost-effective, targeted approach.
HOUSING. CHILDCARE. TRANSPORTATION. EDUCATION.
All of these issues—and many others—are part of the myriad causes of family homelessness. As volunteers engage in the Family Promise program,they realize if they can address these challenges, they can serve more people more effectively.
Community Initiatives include a wide array of programs. Some get to the heart of core needs, such as childcare and job training, families face in order to regain self-sufficiency. Other initiatives find ways to match the strengths of local volunteers and the interests of local corporations with the needs of our guests, like financial literacy. Similarly, many initiatives build off core tenets of the Family Promise Program itself, leading to efforts like food assistance, furniture and clothing donation and health, and wellness programs.
