Our mission is to mobilize existing community resources to aid families with children experiencing homelessness and help them transition to sustainable independence.
Family Promise of Hawaiʻi utilizes family-centered strategies and mobilizes community support to increase equitable access to housing for Hawaiʻi's vulnerable families. We address family homelessness 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.

My name is Cathy Sox and Im a co-coordinator along with my fellow co-coordinator Galen Fox, from Church of the Crossroads. Crossroads was one of the first congregations to make the commitment to Family Promise. It?s been a great blessing and privilege to be able to live out my values, share my abilities and to see lives change right before my eyes.
No matter how much of our time and resources have been given, we have been on the RECEIVING end of being blessed by doing the work and carrying out the mission set before us. Spending time volunteering has offered our congregation time to fellowship with each other and our volunteers can see, in real time, the difference their time, food and resources make in other folks? lives. We?ve learned SOO much about other cultures, AND there is a new ?face? of homelessness--- these issues are in the forefront of people?s minds, when they volunteer, when they donate, when they vote.
