Family Promise

FP LOGO- COLORInter-Faith Housing Alliance is an affiliate of Family Promise. Family Promise’s mission is to help homeless and low-income families achieve sustainable independence through a community-based response. Family Promise envisions a nation in which every family has a home, a livelihood, and the chance to build a better future together.

Family Promise began as the Interfaith Hospitality Network in 1986 when a New Jersey resident connected with the local religious community to provide transportation and shelter for homeless families in her neighborhood. It is now a national movement with over 200 affiliates in 42 states that brings together more than 180,000 volunteers to help homeless families regain their housing, independence, and dignity, serving approximately 50,000 people each year. Family Promise affiliates mobilize their local communities to provide shelter, food, and supportive services to families experiencing homelessness in addition to serving as an advocate and educating the community about poverty and homelessness.
