Family Promise partners with religious congregations, community organizations, schools and local service agencies to help families transition from homelessness to permanent housing. Host congregations provide accommodations and meals for four to five families (up to 14 people) for one week every 2 1/2 to 3 months on a rotating schedule. Host congregations turn their houses of worship into temporary homes to provide sleeping quarters and a hospitality room where guest socialize, do homework, and watch television. Guest are provided with evening meals and breakfasts. Volunteers from host congregations provide services to the families in the program 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
