Our Mission

Family Promise rebuilds lives with compassion by providing resources and services that prevent and end homelessness for individuals and families in Washington County.

Family Promise helps homeless and low-income families in Washington County achieve sustainable independence. We recognize that poverty is a multifaceted problem that requires a multifaceted response from the community. We provide food, shelter, and support services for homeless families through the hands-on work of our many volunteers. We provide advice and advocacy for at-risk families to prevent their becoming homeless. And we educate people about poverty and the means to combat it.

We are one of many independent Affiliates in 44 states (and counting). At the heart of our work is the Interfaith Hospitality Network (IHN). The IHN marshals existing local resources to provide for homeless families as they work to get back on their feet. These resources include available congregational spaces, donated goods, and – most importantly – volunteers.
