Volunteers Are The Heart of Family Promise.

Family Promise has two constituencies. Families in need, to be sure, but we also present the opportunity for compassionate Americans to make a difference in their own communities. We offer a wide range of volunteer activities to fit varying schedules and levels of commitment. And our program allows families to volunteer together, from grandparents to young children.

How You Can Help

Our 1,200 dedicated volunteers help us provide emergency shelter, meals and other assistance to homeless families for about one-third the cost of traditional shelters. This helps keep families together in a safe and supportive environment.

Have A Direct Impact

Become a personal support system to homeless families in the network. You can share contacts for jobs and housing, help write resumes and prepare for job interviews, donate clothing and furniture, and subsidize security deposits.

Make A Difference

Because of the involvement and dedication of our volunteers, more than 75 percent of the families we have assisted have found permanent homes. But your supportive relationships can continue even after families leave the network.
