Volunteers are at the heart of what we do. Our hundreds of dedicated volunteers help us provide emergency shelter, meals and other assistance to homeless families for about one-third the cost of traditional shelters. Family Promise keeps families together and provides them with a safe, supportive and home-like environment.
They become a personal support system to homeless families in the network. They share contacts for jobs and housing, help write resumes and prepare for job interviews, donate clothing and furniture, and subsidize security deposits. These supportive relationships often continue after families leave the network. Because of the involvement and dedication of our volunteers more than 75 percent of the families we assist find permanent homes.
