Family Promise is much more than an overnight shelter.

  • During the day, the professional staff works with families to provide intensive coaching,
    helping them access community resources, secure stable employment and childcare,
    create a sustainable budget, and set long-term goals to address the root causes of their
    homelessness.
  •  In addition to shelter, FP also offers the SAIL program, launched in 2013, which
    supports families for one year as they transition from shelter back into apartments, and
  • the Steps to Success program, launched in 2015, which provides educational and
    career-building opportunities.
  • In 2017, FP launched the LIFE homelessness prevention and shelter diversion program,
    which helps families avoid eviction and shelter entry by providing subsidies for rent in
    arrears or security deposits, advocacy with landlords, and one year of family coaching
    and educational workshops.
  • Last year FPM helped 64 families, including 101 children, transition to a “home”.
