What We Do

Our mission is to help homeless families achieve sustainable independence. We recognize that poverty is a complex problem that requires a multifaceted response. Our solution is based in trauma-informed case management, financial literacy education and Open Table Mentoring services. We provide comfortable shelter, meals, vouchers, and essential supplies for homeless families.

To access services, please call the Summit County Homeless Hotline at

Trauma Informed Case Management

Family Promise recognizes homelessness as a traumatic experience for families with children and promotes an environment of healing and recovery.

Financial Literacy

Effectively managing finances is an imperative step in the Family Promise program to enable our families to achieve sustainable independence and obtain permanent housing.

Going Home, Staying Home Aftercare

Going Home, Staying Home aftercare services are available to families for at least one year after they transition out of Family Promise

housing and into independence.

Open Table Mentoring

Open Table is an evidence-based model in which through a “Table”, individuals are trained to use their vast relational capital and social networks to impact the social determinants of health for an individual or family.

Nutrition Program

When you are experiencing homelessness, consuming healthy, nutritious meals is not always possible.

Home-Owning 101

Many families in our program have never owned their own home. Sometimes, the cost of repairs or monthly bills are what led them into a homeless situation.
