Serving Homeless Families, A Community Effort
Family Promise serves homeless families in the Lima-Allen County area. We connect families with service agencies to help them find jobs to sustain them financially while they look for permanent housing.
The heart of the program is the churches that have focused their mission efforts locally. Participating churches provide temporary overnight accommodations for the families giving them a warm place to sleep, a nutritious meal in the evening and the tender mentoring of volunteers to insure them someone cares about them. Annually, Family Promise serves 16 plus families which includes adults and children. We provide over 2500 shelter nights, over 8,000 meals with over 8400 volunteer hours. The positive housing outcome is 83.5% and about 75% find employment while at Family Promise.
To learn how you or your church can be a part of this worthwhile mission, call 419-879-4600 or email: firstname.lastname@example.org. Chuck Wolfe, Family Promise Executive Director, is available to speak with your administrative board or any group who is interested in becoming involved.
A heartfelt thank you to Potash Corporation for their generous donation for a van to transport our families. See the "OUR SUPPORTERS" page for more pictures.
Family Promise is a faith-based agency working with various community partners, dedicated to helping homeless families achieve and sustain independence by providing help, hope and a safe haven as they seek suitable employment and housing.
