Family Promise is leading a collaborative effort to bring our community together to help homeless families regain their housing, independence, and dignity. Families that enter our care are our treasured guests. Core to our mission is keeping families together and providing them with a safe, supportive and home-like environment. Our Day Center serves as a hub for families to access resources. If parents do not have a job, they work with the Family Promise team to seek employment. Our team also helps families to secure permanent housing and other resources to help them regain their independence.
Hope United Church of Christ has been involved in this mission in the past, including providing meals for families. Our Family Promise Coordinator is Cathy Evers.
