THE PROGRAM

Program of Care

Family Promise is a community-based approach to solving homelessness, engaging both the local community, as well as, an interfaith network in the effort to combat family homelessness.  Guests in our program receive a full complement of resources, support and training as they work towards their own stability and self-reliance.

Host Congregations

 

Families entering our program stay as the guests of congregations throughout the South Bay. These houses of faith open their doors to provide a bed for the evening, nutritious meals, and the hospitality of a loving community.

Support Congregations

 

Support Congregations, while not hosting families directly, strengthen the network by providing volunteers for host sites and the Family Day Center, supplies, food for the families, and in some cases, financial support for families upon graduation from our program.
