Who We Are
Our mission is to help homeless with children achieve sustainable independence.
Since 2004, Family Promise of Summit County has helped families experiencing homelessness stay together and achieve sustainable independence. Our solution to family homelessness is based in trauma-informed case management, financial literacy education, and mentoring services to address the root causes of poverty and homelessness. We are an affiliate of the national Family Promise program.
Family Promise started in 1986 in New Jersey. Today, Family Promise is comprised of more than 200 Affiliates, like us serving Summit County, across 43 states, and is the leading national nonprofit addressing the issue of family homelessness.
