Family Promise

Family Promise of Green County is a 501(c)3 and an affiliate of a national non-profit organization with over 200 affiliates across the U.S. providing shelter, food and case management services to homeless families in our communities. Family Promise has been assisting families for over 30 years, has served more than 1,000,000 people and continues to grow to meet the needs of so many at risk families. This program relies on volunteers and offers many opportunities for you to become involved in the fight of against family and child homelessness in our country.

 

While we are not a faith based organization, we team up with local churches throughout our county to provide shelter for homeless families. Churches are empty at night and it is good sense to utilize the space for community outreach for families in need. Our host churches provide a safe place, the churches and communities work in unison to provide volunteers to provide hospitality and meals and our program staff provide case management. We assist families in goal planning, employment, medical services, financial education, transportation, parenting and housing. We also offer a transitional housing program, shelter diversion and in-home case management.

All Family Promise guest families receive:

  • Overnight accommodations at a local congregation
  • 3 meals a day
  • Intensive case management
  • Family Day Center/office with internet access, guest phone, laundry and showers
  • Transportation assistance to school, work, etc.
  • Social support from volunteers
  • Linkage with needed social and educational services
