Family Promise of Lubbock is proud to be part of a nationwide effort to help children and families who are homeless regain their sustainable independence. The week of Sunday, October 18 through Sunday, October 25, has been designated Family Promise Week.
Family Promise Week will be celebrated nationwide and in the 192 communities where there is a Family Promise Affiliate. Since 1988, Family Promise has helped more than 600,000 people—men, women and children—with housing, case management and other services.
Started as a local effort to address the crisis of family homelessness, Family Promise works on the principle that the elements to help children and their families—who make up 40% of all people who are homeless—are already in the community. The program brings together houses of worship to provide temporary homes, facilities to provide space during the day for case management, and most importantly, thousands of volunteers who, by sharing a few hours of their time, enable families to turn their lives around.
