Our Core Values
Prevention and Diversion
We help prevent families from spiraling into homelessness
We are hospitality in action. Our volunteers are companions to families, sharing meals, community connections, mentoring, and compassion.
We provide highly individualized, person-centered, trauma-informed care and case management.
We build bridges among neighbors, bringing together existing resources to fulfill our mission. The relationships between family members, volunteers, and our team is transformative and fosters communities committed to solving the crisis of family homelessness.
we are a dynamic organization, taking a holistic approach to ending family homelessness. Our services, advocacy, and leadership are focused on providing customized and evolving solutions to homelessness.
We empower all stakeholders, the family members, volunteers, donors, community members, businesses, and government officials to mobilize change in our community so that families can achieve economic stability and children can access a healthier future.
Prevention and Diversion
We help by working with families in their own homes to avoid eviction or foreclosure in order to prevent families from becoming homeless in the first place. We work on a sustainable housing plan so that families avoid facing near homelessness again. The reason for the need is not as important as the commitment the family makes to working on an individualized plan for achieving stability.
We also offer shelter diversion by supporting families experiencing homelessness and seeking either to restore housing at their current location or toidentify a safe place to avoid entering a shelter such as living with a family member or friend while working on a stabile housing plan.
We provide continued support and wrap-around services to address the root cause of their homelessness and to develop a long-term stability plan.
Promise Place Shelter is open for families willing to abide by our Guest Policy.
