Family Promise is a nonprofit organization committed to helping low-income families achieve lasting independence.
In response to family crisis, the Interfaith Hospitality Network brings the faith community together to help families regain their housing, their independence, and their dignity. IHN is a partnership of congregations within a community helping families who are facing homelessness. It offers an opportunity for volunteers of all faiths to reduce homelessness and transform lives.
As a part of Family Promise, our church provides lodging for a week at a time for several families. This strategy enables networks to help homeless families achieve lasting independence at a third of the cost of traditional shelters.
Nationally, 80 percent of the families that IHNs serve go on to long-term housing. In 2009, Family Promise affiliates served more than 47,000 children and adults and involved more than 130,000 volunteers in 5,000 congregations.
