Family Promise allows communities to develop comprehensive, holistic solutions for families facing homelessness. Families come to us in crisis; our approach of coordinated compassion helps them rebuild their lives with new skills and ongoing support
Nationally, over the past 30+ years, we have provided shelter, meals, case management, homelessness prevention and stabilization services to nearly 1 million family members.
KEEPING FAMILIES TOGETHER
We believe families should stay together — not be separated — during the most difficult times in their lives.
Nationwide, more than 88% of families in our shelter program secure housing because of our intensive case management and community support.
Family Promise of Southwest New Jersey currently engages over 600 volunteers from the 24 host and support congregations in our network.
Collectively across all Family Promise Affiliates, we mobilize more than 200,000 dedicated volunteers who make a tremendous difference in families’ lives—and in their communities.
For every dollar invested, Family Promise returns $3 in donated goods and services.
Our volunteers don’t stop at shelter, meals, and support services. Nationwide, Family Promise affiliates have created more than 1,700 community-based programs for housing, homelessness prevention, health care, life skills, and mentoring, among others.
