Family Promise of Knoxville helps families rebuild their lives by finding work, transportation, schools, day care and permanent housing. We help them discover new skills such as financial management and healthy eating and offer ongoing support after leaving the emergency shelter program.
Nationally, over the past 30+ years, we have provided shelter, meals, case management, homelessness prevention and stabilization services to nearly 1 million family members.
KEEPING FAMILIES TOGETHER
We believe families should stay together — not be separated — during the most difficult times in their lives.
Nationwide, more than 88% of families in our shelter program secure housing because of our intensive case management and community support.
Collectively across all the Family Promise Affiliates, we mobilize more than 200,000 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. Nationwide, we have created more than 1,700 programs for housing, homelessness prevention, health care, life skills, and mentoring, among others.
