Emergency Shelter

Our shelter program and warm hospitality is the foundation of the Family Promise model.

Until 2020, Family Promise operated a rotational shelter program. Families experiencing homelessness moved weekly between 12 different host church locations. These 12 host churches, along with 9 church congregation volunteers provided shelter, meals, and support for one week out of the quarter. 

Recently, as a result of the Covid-19 Pandemic, we pivoted the rotational shelter model to static sites. Family Promise currently operates two emergency shelter locations and ten transitional housing units. With the move to static shelter sites, we have expanded our shelter program and are now able to serve up to eighteen families at one time. 

HOW IT WORKS

Families working with us are required to meet with a Family Promise case manager once a week. Our family case managers empower our guests to create goals that help address each family's unique situation. Together, they work to find solutions to overcome potential challenges related to housing, employment, childcare, well-being, and transportation. Our case managers also provide information and access to additional resources  within our community. 

Family Promise serves individuals who are pregnant, families with children under the age of 18, and families of all compositions. We welcome everyone in the community to be part of the solution, empowering families who may be experiencing homelessness so that they can ultimately regain and retain the safety, security, and opportunity that comes with having a home.
