About Us

 

kneukers porchThe mission of Family Promise of Greater Johnson City (FPJC) is to help homeless and low income families achieve sustainable independence. We provide a network of faith congregations and community agencies to promote a collaborative response for homeless families with children.

 

In particular, this response provides an opportunity for homeless families to remain together as a family while addressing the challenges that confront them in obtaining housing. These families receive counseling, access to a host of services (e.g. job skills training, etc.), and opportunities for growth with issues related to each family’s specific needs.

Hello from Family Promise...we are wishing a happy and safe holiday to all!
I am posting a request as well - we are in need of an interpreter who speaks Spanish who can help us communicate with a family coming in tomorrow, July 5, at 9 am (for about 1-1.5 hours). Are you or is someone you know fairly fluent in Spanish and English able to assist us? Thank you in advance and Happy Fourth!

Family Promise just really gave us hope that we didn't have when we first started.

It's a wonderful experience. There's a lot of love and joy being expressed daily.

Me and my kids were living in an abandoned building. Now we have our own house. I have a job. I just got a car. Family Promise did all that.
