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.

Last week, we moved another family out of our shelter program!  Miguel is a single dad and a Veteran, and he and case manager Erin worked diligently together for many weeks, allowing him to move his family into their own home.  He's also a great cook and is already creating big family dinners in his own kitchen!  As always, we are grateful to our many supporters and volunteers who serve our families in the churches and elsewhere.

We can't overstate how blessed we were to benefit from such a warm and lovely evening at Founders After 5 tonight. Thanks to our wonderful sponsor, Appalachian Community Federal Credit Union, to Johnson City's finest band, this mountain, to Yee-Haw Brewing Co., the food and art vendors and to everyone who came out and experienced a great night that benefited Family Promise.

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.
