Family Promise allows communities to develop comprehensive, holistic solutions for families facing homelessness. Families come to us in crisis; our approach of coordinated compassion helps them rebuild their lives with new skills and ongoing support.
Using existing community resources, Family Promise of Greater Concord delivers life-changing services at roughly 1/3 the cost of traditional shelters. And, more importantly we keep families together in their time of crisis. In this regard, our track record reflects 83% of families who entered our shelter program found permanent housing in 12-14 weeks and were able to regain their independence.
Since Family Promise of Greater Concord began operations in 2015, we have provided shelter, meals, case management, homelessness prevention, and stabilization services to 121 families (for a total of 391 individuals).
Last year alone we are grateful to have helped 34 families (54 were children under 18) for a total of 105 individuals through our coordinated efforts of compassion.
KEEPING FAMILIES TOGETHER
We believe families should stay together — not be separated — during the most difficult times in their lives.
In the Greater Concord area more than 83% of families in our shelter program secure housing because of our intensive case management and community support.
For every dollar invested, we return $3 in donated goods and services.
