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.

As I was rearranging my Peruvian Nativity Set that I have sitting in my office at Family Promise and that I purchased at Artisans Village in Johnson City, I was thinking about our ministry and how good and faithful God has been to us during this past year.  He has allowed us to share His love with many homeless families and individuals – with many homeless kids – and to help these folks as they work to get back on their feet.  God has blessed Family Promise with hundreds of wonderful volunteers from many strong church partners.  He has provided us with a caring and supportive board of directors.  And, He has allowed us to share our vision with many dedicated donors who ensure we can continue God’s work in this community.  Thank you to all who love and care for Family Promise and our families.  You make a difference!  Merry Christmas to you all, and Happy New Year!     ~Bob

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.
