Description

About Us...

  • Innovation Works

Family Promise of Hawai’i is a new and innovative program to help families with children escape homelessness. Founded in Hawaii in 2005, we opened up our first Family Center in Kailua and then in 2007, we expanded to our second Family Center in Honolulu. We now run two interfaith networks, one on the windward side and one in town.

  • We are there every step

We do this by developing, training, and supporting a network of interfaith congregations whom host families quarterly. Each host site provides a safe place to sleep, good food, and generous hospitality. Guests stay at a host site for a week, then move on to the next host site.

  • Help where it is needed

During the day, guests work, pursue employment, attend school, or enroll in job training. A Family Center provides access to phones, mail, fax, a copier, showers, and laundry facilities. Three to five families (up to 14 individuals) can be accommodated by each network at any given time. The program provides transportation to and from the host sites and the Family Center.
