Every child deserves a home

Poverty is a complex problem. It takes more than a simple solution. At Family Promise we are leading a collaborative effort to bring our community together to help homeless families regain their housing, independence, and dignity. Families that enter our care are our treasured guests.

Core to our mission is keeping families together and providing them with a safe, supportive and home-like environment. Our Day Center serves as a hub for families to access resources. If parents do not have a job, they work with the Family Promise team to seek employment. Our team also helps families to secure permanent housing and other resources to help them regain their independence.

The Need

Homelessness (noun): the state of having no home.

In Iowa, one in 30 children is homeless, including over 900 school-aged children in the Cedar Rapids metro area alone. On average one student in each classroom is not in a consistent home.  We know that keeping families together is key to their success.
