Family Promise of Washington County Facebook
For over seven years, Family Promise of Washington County has provided emergency housing solutions to women and families within the county. The organization was built on the belief that everyone deserves a chance and a brighter future.
Family Promise exists solely from the generosity of the community. With the support of over 25 congregations, local volunteers and donations, Family Promise is able to provide 5,100 nights of shelter and 15,300 meals annually to homeless children and their families.
Their location at 724 Elm Street has eight apartments for families moving out of shelter and a day center for families living in the shelter program. The shelter program provides a nightly meal and bed at a host congregation and access to the day center with showers, laundry and case management.
There are many ways to support the organization. Financial contributions and donations of personal hygiene items, paper supplies and cleaning products are always appreciated. Individuals may also volunteer with local host congregations and help make a meal or stay overnight.
Family Promise of Washington County is part of a national organization with over 200 affiliates across the county. If you are someone you know is homeless or at risk of becoming homeless, call 262.353.9304.
