Workforce development. Partners in Housing. Financial capability. Health and wellness. Homelessness has many causes and housing stability involves many solutions. Family Promise Affiliates have developed and implemented more than 1,000 different programs that address every aspect of stabilization.

Some get to the heart of core needs, such as childcare and job training, families face in order to regain self-sufficiency. Other initiatives find ways to match the strengths of local volunteers and the interests of local corporations with the needs of our guests, like financial literacy and mentoring. Similarly, many initiatives build off core tenets of the foundational shelter program itself, leading to efforts like food assistance, furniture and clothing donation, and health and wellness programs.

Family Promise of Wayne County provides every graduate family with a 5-Star Start of living and apartment essentials.  Families can also apply to the Nurturing Program where a volunteer group develops a humble home start that results in a family walking in the door and the apartment is 100% ready to go.

All graduate families also receive one year of post-graduate case management and services to help them stay on the track of self-sufficiency.
