At Family Promise, we spend every day talking with families who have experienced or are at risk of homelessness. We believe that sharing their stories is essential to spreading awareness about family homelessness in the United States. Want to learn more? Check out our recent media coverage below.

Frequently asked questions
Do you accept furniture? Do you take items not on your wish list?
We do take furniture, clothing and other items not on our wish list, however due to limited storage capacity we only take what current families in the program need. Please call us in the office for the most updated information.
Do we really have homeless families here?
Yes unfortunately we do but it is not the stereotype you may be thinking.
Family Promise works with congregations. Do I need to be part of a church to get help or to get involved?
How are you funded?
The largest percentage of our funding comes from individual donors and private foundations who have developed a strong relationship with us because of our impact. We also receive some grants and rely heavily on our fundraisers.
Do donated items need to be brand new?
We do take some used items, however they need to be in gently used condition. Pillows and toiletries do need to be brand new. Clothing can be used, we just ask to please check it ahead of time for tears and stains.
Can I just drop off donations anytime?
No, please do NOT just dropp off donations, as someone is not necessarily at the office all the time. Please call ahead and schedule a drop off day and time.
