What is Family Promise?

When I needed a ride you drove me in the big blue van...
When I was tired you gave me a bed to sleep on...
When I was lonely you gave me comfort...
When I was hungry you gave me food..

The Family Promise program is dedicated to helping homeless families stay intact during times of crisis. The Interfaith Hospitality Network in Washington has approximately 32 area churches that provide families with a warm bed, three meals per day, transportation, compassion and comfort.
