Description: Family Promise of Gwinnett provides 24-hour shelter, meals, transportation and supportive services for up to 90 days. The program is a partnership with faith communities throughout Gwinnett County; however, religious values are not imposed on our guests.
In partnership with Family Promise of Gwinnett, congregations provide overnight lodging to our guests. Congregations usually convert religious education or meeting rooms into private or semi-private bedrooms for each family. A home cooked dinner, sack lunches, and breakfast are provided everyday. Access to shower and laundry facilities are also provided. A congregation hosts guests from 5:30 p.m. to 7:00 a.m. for one week. On Sundays, guests move to a new congregation. Volunteers move guests' belongings to the next host congregation.
Family Promise of Gwinnett provides families with a Day Center to use as their home base during their stay. At the Day Center, guests work on self-sufficiency plans and meet with staff. We provide transportation to and from the Day Center and Host Congregations everyday. All guests accepted into the program are eligible to receive the following additional services and assistance:

Toiletry items & diapers
Phone & Internet access
