Transforming the lives of families experiencing homelessness because every child deserves a home.

In Monroe County alone, over 250 children with over 600 family members will experience homelessness this year. That is about 1 in every 80 students in Monroe County. If you have a child in school, that means they likely know more than two homeless students.

  • Over 33% of these Children will experience Chronic Absenteeism (missing 10% or more of school days).

  • Over 26% of these children require additional supportive education.

Who We Are

Family Promise of Monroe County is a family homeless shelter offering food, clothing, life skills, and community. Our mission is to help homeless and low-income families achieve sustainable independence through a community-based response. What began as a small outreach in Summit, NJ, over 30 years ago is now a National Initiative.

Why We Do It

There is a severe shortage of affordable housing in America. Our community experiences the same disparities made worse by rising rents and stagnant wages. Most families would be devastated by an unforeseen expense or emergency and could easily be thrust into a homeless situation. Our vision is a nation in which every family has a home, a livelihood, and the chance to build a better future.

What we do

WHAT WE DO

Prevention and Diversion

We are there when a family’s homelessness is imminent, and we work to avoid a family needing our shelter service. We help them navigate to appropriate resources, negotiate with  landlords, and identify barriers and priorities. 

Shelter Program

Our Shelter is set on a rotational model using different sites within our community throughout a 90 day period. We serve only famillies who are vetted to ensure safetey for volunteers and other families. While we try to make a very comfortable environment for our families  we also adhere to a very structured and guided approach.

Stabilization

Services and support after shelter helps families remain housed. These structured programs provide continued support and reduce the risk of a family’s re-entry into homelessness. This kind of support can last up to one to two years depending on the needs of each individual family.

Family Services

We offer a selection of family services to the families in our programs. Ranging from transportation assistance to Tenant Based Rental Assistance, as well as in person and online courses in  job seeking, budgeting, and good tenancy practices.

Community Services

A core value of Family Promise is to promote strong community ties by bringing people together. Either to create awareness, achieve a common goal, or even entertainment. often what we do incorporates all three. Our goal is always to create a positive change for everyone. 

Testimonials

TESTIMONIALS

"It's a great program! It was a different experience for the kids and myself. We really appreciate the love and help you guys gave us. We are forever grateful for that help. Everyone at all the churches was so wonderful and sweet. I believe if it wasn't for y'all giving us a place to lay our heads at night with food and a way to bath...I don't know what I would've done. But I do know I probably would still be trying to find some where to live for me and my children to stay. Will I recommend this program to anyone? Yes. I would in a heart beat!"
