Why It Works

A Large Network of Compassionate Volunteers

Family Promise has only 1/3 the operating costs of traditional shelters.

How can we spend less and do more? Family Promise has a small staff and relies on our volunteers who cook and serve meals, provide overnight shelter, share their stories and show our families dignity and respect.

This diverse network of more than 1,600 volunteers represents all faiths and backgrounds. What they share is the desire to make a different in the lives of families in crisis.
