Family Promise rescues primarily first time homeless families from the streets and provides emergency shelter and basic needs in a sixty day program designed to assist their return to self-sufficiency. Our shelter includes a sanctuary for the family pet, the first such program in Arizona.
Our goal is to give the family a hands-up and assist them in their return to self sufficiency. Services include case management, counseling, enrichment programs, resources and referrals with the focus on securing employment and next step housing. Our program model is based on a national model that is highly successful, and over 70% of families accepted into the Family Promise program graduate into sustainable housing. Family Promise partners with over 30 interfaith congregations across the Valley to provide safe overnight shelter, food and compassion to families in crisis.
Our objective is to rescue families quickly before the devastating effects of homelessness create a downward spiral of poverty, reliance on shelters, accompanied by developmental, academic and health problems, and ultimately foster care for the children.
