About FAMILY PROMISE OF METRO EAST

Location:

Mission Statement

Helping families experiencing housing instability achieve sustainable independence through a community-based response.

Description

Family Promise of Metro East (serving NE & SE Portland, Oregon) helps our community coordinate to compassionately address the root causes of family homelessness. Our goal is to address the issue holistically, providing prevention services before families reach crisis, shelter and case management when they become homeless, and stabilization programs once they have secured housing to ensure they remain independent. We tap existing local resources to empower families towards economic stability. Families come to us in crisis; we help them rebuild their lives with new skills and ongoing support using a community based model.
