Family Promise of Greater Roanoke allows our community 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
Over the past 22 years through 2019, we have provided shelter, meals, case management, homelessness prevention and stabilization services to 554 families with 1,028 children and 826 adults.
KEEPING FAMILIES TOGETHER
We believe families should stay together — not be separated — during the most difficult times in their lives.
More than 88% of families in our shelter program secure housing because of our intensive case management and community support.
We mobilize more than 1,000 dedicated volunteers who make a tremendous difference in families’ lives—and in their communities.
For every dollar invested, we return $3 in donated goods and services.
Our volunteers don’t stop at shelter, meals, and support services. With our community partners, we have created programs for housing, homelessness prevention, health care, life skills, and mentoring, among others.
