WHAT IS FAMILY PROMISE?
We're a non-profit in Great Falls, MT. We're an interfaith organization, which means we bring together churches and congregations from around the community to help children and families in our community who don't have homes. The churches and their volunteers handle food and lodging, so they have somewhere to stay for the short-term, and our case manager steps in to help the families find sustainable independence-- affordable housing, jobs, benefits, and whatever else they need to succeed! We're just one of over 200 Family Promise affiliates in communities around the U.S.A., using the same successful gameplan!
NOT YOUR ORDINARY HOMELESS SHELTER
Family Promise of Great Falls isn't an emergency shelter, and it's not just a place to spend the night. It's a homeless shelter tied to a 60-day program designed to help families get back on their feet, and empower them to not just succeed in their own lives, but also give back to their community.
