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.

For her Girl Scout project focused on empowering females, Belle Gates donated over 200 hygiene products to Family Promise. She and her mother filled up their vehicle and delivered it to us recently. It is refreshing to know that today's young people are interested in helping those less fortunate. What a generous gift...thank you, Belle!

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.
