When Family Promise began, it was a local response to a problem in Union County, New Jersey. Thirty years later, we are a national movement involving more than 200,000 volunteers and serving more than 125,000 people yearly.
But the core of what we do is still local—partnerships within a city or county changing lives. Family Promise makes that possible by developing and supporting Affiliates that address family homelessness right in their own community.
Over the past three decades, Family Promise has continued to expand our scope and our reach. Today, we comprise more than 200 Affiliates across 43 states, and are the leading national nonprofit addressing the issue of family homelessness. This map charts our growth since our founding in Summit, New Jersey.
