What We Do

Family Promise helps homeless and “at-risk” families in Central Florida get back on their feet. We guide, motivate and inspire families to life beyond the crisis of homelessness. Embracing a “housing first” approach, we help families gain access to housing as quickly as possible with no readiness conditions. Through intensive case management services we help homeless families reach their goals for housing and economic stability.

Programs

Emergency Response: The best time to stop homelessness is before it happens. Through diversion and prevention, we provide conflict mediation with landlords or housemates and financial assistance if necessary. If clients do become homeless, the Congregational Shelter Program provides shelter, meals and hospitality through the rotational program using the facilities and volunteers of faith-based partners.

Housing: Safe housing is our primary focus. Family Promise works with community partners to house homeless families rapidly using need-based declining rental assistance. Thanks to a partnership with the City of Orlando, Family Promise also owns two homes that are rented at an affordable housing market rate.

Stabilization: This voluntary program empowers families to live and sustain independent living. This approach will create a shift in mindset for the staff and the clients who will become a team working toward a mutually established goal. The ultimate goal is for participants to maintain their housing stability for at least two years following their exit from homelessness to permanent housing.
