It’s a simple concept at a critical time: sheltering families who have become homeless. Most shelters are divided by gender, but sometimes a family needs to stay together in tough patches brought on by economic hardship. Family Promise works with local churches, synagogues and mosques to make a place for a homeless family to sleep and get meals. Families do not have to be religious, nor will they be preached to—they just have to be serious about getting back on their feet. Family Promise also offers job training, health-care assistance and child-care programs. Last year they served about 75 families, helping them transition back to permanent housing without breaking up the family unit.
