Affiliate Council

The Family Promise Affiliate Council is comprised of a diverse and talented group of Affiliate leaders. These Executive Directors will assist in developing the programs, policies, and procedures that enable Affiliates to best empower families and mobilize volunteers, both now and in the years to come. As with the Guest Advisory Council, we believe this constituent engagement is critical to our aspirations to be the leader on the issue of family homelessness.
