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.

We are very grateful to Mrs. Amy Hecht who donated her vehicle to us last week. She had given it a lot of thought, asked around, and decided that Family Promise would be the lucky recipient! We will, in turn, give it to one of our families who is working hard in our program to better themselves. Thank you, Amy, and thank you all for your continued support. ... Read moreHide

Families come to us from many different circumstances.  We often say we meet people where they are, and we help them to stabilize and to work through their immediate troubles.  Today we moved this family into their own home.  In the few months they were with us, they've accomplished so much: both have obtained their GEDs, they've paid off debt, re-instated a driver's license, obtained employment, and had a new baby, to name a few.  Please join us in celebration and in prayer for their continued progress!

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.
