Make a gift to our Endowment Fund


Create a better future for children by helping to end homelessness! Family Promise of Summit County has brightened the future for hundreds of children by keeping their families together during a housing crisis and help them find stable housing. Over 90% of our families find a new home and are still housed two years later. That means families are not only finding housing but also are able to stay in housing.

We can’t do this work without the generous support from you.

By donating to our endowment, you have the power to give even more children hope for their future, for many years to come.

YOU are creating a legacy with Family Promise and the families we serve ensuring that later generations have the hope of staying together and sustainable independence.
