Our mission is to help homeless families with children find permanent housing, and through our continuum of supportive programs and mentors, help them achieve sustainable self-sufficiency. Family Promise wants to ensure that children do not continue to cycle through our community’s homeless emergency system
With the help of area congregations, businesses, and over 2,000 community volunteers, we have helped more than 1,000 families and over 2,300 area children. The best news is that 90% of our families are successful in leaving shelter to find a new home and 85% of those families remain housed a year later.
Family Promise of Grand Rapids is part of a national network of over 200 independent affiliates across the country serving hundreds of thousands of families and children each year.
