OVER 1 MILLION SERVED SINCE 1988
As the leading organization addressing family homelessness, Family Promise impacts the lives of tens of thousands of people nationwide each year. That impact is illustrated in countless inspirational stories of success, but it is also reflected in our annual statistics: 200,000 volunteers, 177,000 family members served, 81% of the families we serve in shelter secure housing, and we return $3 in goods and services for every $1 raised.
200,000 VOLUNTEERS ENGAGED NATIONWIDE
There are 200+ operating Family Promise Affiliates in 43 states. Each Affiliate is supported by, on average, 25-30 congregations and other organizations providing the volunteers who are the backbone of our work. Affiliates that have a tracking system for their volunteers often count more than 3,000 in their community. They provide home-cooked meals, sleep overnight with the families, play Uno with the children, and provide skills-based training such as legal counsel, financial literacy, and childcare. It is difficult to determine a precise total for those who give of their time and resources, so we take a very conservative approach and estimate an average of 1,000 volunteers per Affiliate, multiplied by 200 Affiliates nationwide, to reach our total of 200,000.
