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.

Girl Scout Troop #289 collected items for Family Promise over the holidays, and they've been talking to us for many months about other ways they could serve our families while completing their Silver Award project. Last night, it all came together! This group of dedicated young ladies purchased and assembled a brand new crib, changing table, and rocking chair for our nursery. In the play room, they painted a chalkboard wall, cleaned, decorated, put together play mats, brought a new shelf and organized the many toys and books they placed on it. The babies in our program will be comfortable, and the older kiddos will have plenty to keep them entertained. We're very grateful Troop 289 chose our organization to help!

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.
