About Us

Founded in Summit, New Jersey in 1988, Family Promise is a national organization that comprises more than 200 affiliates in 43 states that work together to transform the lives of families experiencing homelessness. What began as a local response to a problem in Union County, New Jersey has grown over the last 30 years into a national movement involving more than 200,000 volunteers nationwide who serve more than 125,000 people yearly. Today Family Promise is the leading national nonprofit addressing the issue of family homelessness. While we’ve grown, the core of what we do is still local – partnerships within a city or county changing lives for the better.
