What We Do
Family Promise provides a family-centered approach to assist families in overcoming homelessness.
HELP US STABILIZE HOUSING: H.U.S.H. is an on-going project for FPSC. Each family that enters the program has unique needs and these needs are met on an individual basis as funds are available. H.U.S.H. funds may be used to prevent family homelessness by helping with rent, utilities, etc. or to help families secure permanent housing. We can also provide basic needs such as phone cards, gas cards, and assistance with childcare. FPSC prioritizes these needs and will assist with funding as resources become available.
TRANSITIONAL HOUSING: We currently have three transitional housing units. Families may be eligible for transitional housing after being in the shelter program. The families agree to participate in case management and pay housing expenses based on their income.
FAMILIES FORWARD: Case management is an on-going service that starts the minute the family calls FPSC and does not stop even after the family moves into permanent house. Families are free to call FPSC at any time after they leave the program. Continued support can be provided in several ways: Continuing to set and achieve goals, budgeting assistance, using our laundry facilities, obtaining supplies when the paycheck runs out before the month does and moral support.
ROTATIONAL SHELTER: Our goal is to provide food and shelter to children and their families and help them get back on their feet. Overnight shelter is provided by our network of host churches. Our family center provides a safe place for families to gather before work or school. The Case Manager works with families to create a plan for the family to reduce barriers and achieve goals related to employment and secure housing.
