Who We Are

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

Family Promise of the Lower Cape Fear provides emergency shelter to families facing a homeless crisis and transitional housing to families that are victims of domestic violence.  We aim to ensure every child has a safe place to call home.

Family Promise/WIHN (Wilmington Interfaith Hospitality Network) provides one of the only transitional housing in the tri-county area for families who are victims of domestic violence with our Families Forward program.  Our emergency shelter program, (WIHN) unites community partners in a collaborative effort to assist homeless families. On a rotating basis, host congregations provide accommodations and meals for up to four families for one week, four times a year. Additional congregations and community partners support the hosts, providing materials, human, and financial resources to support the program. Volunteers from the community provide meals and support services. Our office is located in the Harrelson Center, 20 N. 4th Street, Suite 440, where staff works intensively with the families as they seek jobs, housing, health care, and other resources necessary for independent living.
