Family Promise of Greater Roanoke empowers homeless families with children to achieve sustainable independence through a community-based response.
The vision of Family Promise is a community in which every family has a home, a livelihood, and the chance to build a better future.
We are a network of 31 congregations and over 1,000 volunteers who provide temporary housing and meals for families with children. We work with 4 families at a time (14 people). We provide full-time case management to assist families in addressing and overcoming causes of homelessness and creating goals of employment, housing, education in their return to independence.
