Mission

Family Promise was established as a nonprofit in April, 1996, and is a unique project that deals specifically with homeless families in the Las Vegas valley. Our commitment is to find and implement long-term solutions to low-income and homeless families in our communities. We are not a religious organization although religious belief motivates many of our volunteers and supporters. Churches and synagogues, faith houses, shelter our guests. Our mission: Partnering with faith houses and community organizations, we assist families in the Las Vegas Valley to transition from homelessness to stability and independence through compassionate guidance, shelter and education.

Services

Our mission is to:
* Coordinate an interfaith collaboration to provide hospitality, shelter, meals and other support services to homeless families.

* Provide structure and compassionate guidance to assist families in their efforts to secure jobs, housing and stability.

* Provide a safe, healthy and homelike environment for the families in the program.

* Offer members of different faith communities an opportunity to work in an outreach ministry within their own faith building, church, mosque or synagogue.

* Become a catalyst for other service initiatives such as job counseling, parenting classes, etc.

* Develop a support network to serve families during and after their stay in the program.

* Witness to the Las Vegas community a compassionate and effective way to respond to homelessness.
