Mission Statement

Building partnerships throughout our communities to support children and families experiencing homelessness to achieve sustainable independence.

Description

Great River Family Promise is an affiliate of Family Promise. A network includes thirteen houses of worship and engages between 800 - 1000 community volunteers each year. Host congregations provide overnight shelter, meals, and hospitality for up to four families for one week every four months on a rotating basis. Families have access to a Day Center which houses administrative offices and provides a place to do laundry, take showers, store a few personal items and receive mail. Transportation between the Day Center and congregation facilities is provided though the network.
