What is Family Promise of Greater Orlando?
Surrounding families with a community of support and dignity, the mission of Family Promise of Greater Orlando is to provide shelter and supportive services to assist homeless families in achieving sustainable housing as quickly as possible. Family Promise utilizes a “housing first” approach to helping families overcome the crisis of homelessness and regain housing stability so that the experience of homelessness for families in Central Florida is rare and brief.
Family Promise’s Focus:.
- Provide safe, family-friendly short-term emergency shelter in the facilities of local congregations so that homeless families are not on the street, in their cars or in campgrounds.
- Provide case management services to guide, motivate and inspire homeless families to overcome the barriers which prevent them from obtaining housing and to assist in their housing search and move-in.
- Provide in-home housing stability case management services to help families improve their household income and establish the community supports they need to sustain their housing.
- Develop affordable housing alternatives for low-income homeless families.
