Family Promise of Lancaster County mobilizes the faith community to empower homeless families to achieve lasting independence.
Family Promise was founded on the belief that Americans are compassionate people who want to make a difference. Our promise has been to link those in need with those who want to help. Seventeen years and 110,000 volunteers later, our pledge is ever broader and deeper.
We work to accomplish our mission through four program areas:
Interfaith Hospitality Networks (IHNs) provide shelter, meals, and comprehensive support services to homeless families.
Family Mentoring helps prevent homelessness by training volunteers to be advisors and advocates to low-income families.
Just Neighbors, an interactive educational program, raises awareness of the root causes of poverty and homelessness as the first step in establishing community-based responses.
Community Initiatives foster local IHN outgrowth programs, such as transitional housing, job training, childcare, and literacy.
