Every day, 1 out of 19 children in the U.S. experiences homelessness.

Family Promise helps thousands of children and their families work their way back to independence each year through homelessness prevention, emergency shelter, and graduate support services. 81 percent of the families we serve secure housing by the time they exit our program.

Our Promise Guild members help children and families avoid or recover from homelessness every month with an automatic recurring gift to Family Promise.

Join us in the fight against family homelessness! For less than the cost of a cup of coffee every day for a month, you can help transform lives. With a monthly donation of $10 or more, you’ll receive regular updates on some of the families you’re helping and a special thank you gift from Family Promise. Plus, you’ll be listed in our annual report and event programs.


  • $10 can feed a child for one day
  • $15 can wash nearly 100 loads of laundry
  • $25 can provide a family a month’s worth of hygiene products
  • $50 can give a working parent monthly transportation
  • $100 can provide one day of shelter, meals, and case management for a family in need

Join the Promise Guild and make an impact all year long!


JonathAn's Not Afraid Anymore

Jonathan was 8 when his mother’s employer downsized, eliminating her job. They soon lost their housing, and when they sought emergency shelter Jonathan had to switch schools. He was nervous about the idea, but Family Promise met with Jonathan’s new teachers and found him a walking buddy to make sure his first day at his new school was special.

Thanks to friends like you, Jonathan’s transition to his new school was seamless. Since then, Jonathan has continued to excel in school and is now doing well in high school.

Your support gives families like Jonathan’s hope for the future. You can make a difference for children and families in need every month with a membership in the Promise Guild.


“I believe every child deserves to grow up in a home. By giving to Family Promise on a regular basis, I know I’m providing a strong foundation and reliable support for programs that help families and kids in need. I’m proud to play a small part in this!”

 – Megan Steenwyk, Promise Guild Member since 2019
