In Operation since 2000, Family Promise – Greater Phoenix has provided more than just shelter for families. For the past 13 years, the programs at Family Promise have helped over 500 families. These programs have enabled families to move from homelessness to self-sufficiency.
The Family Promise Mission is providing emergency shelter and social services to help families move toward independent housing and self sufficiency.
Vision: The Vision of Family Promise is a community of whole and healthy families.
At Family Promise, we give families the tools and training to care for their children, find employment and housing, and become independent and successful. We strive to provide a safety net for children and their families before they drop into a cycle of endless shelters, loss of school attendance, unemployment, family instability and foster care.
Family Promise provides basic needs such as food, clothing and shelter, but we also provide a safe, encouraging, and constructive environment for families that feel lost and scared. Family Promise’s long-term goal is to break the cycle of homelessness and create a sense of community for the families that participate in the program, and the thousands of volunteers that have contributed to this program over the years.
Family Promise is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization, independently affiliated with a national organization founded in 1986 and comprised of 182 affiliates in 41 states (www.familypromise.org). Family Promise operates 24 hours a day, 365 days a year, and only serves families with children. More than 60% of our clients are children.
