Description: Family Promise is a non?profit organizaon helping homeless families into homes and lastng independence. We believe that no child should have to sleep in a car or under a bridge, and that every family deserves a chance to be whole and have a roof over their head again.


Host Congregations About four times a year, for a week at a time, each host congrega)on provides a place to sleep, meals (supper, breakfast and bag lunch) and hospitality for up to four families at a time. Families are hosted from dinner time to the next morning.

Housing Programs
Family Promise administers a variety of housing projects for homeless parents with minor children.  Our HUD sponsored program is for parents with disabilities; our other
housing programs assist homeless families to get into housing they can afford.  To receive more information about our housing programs please contact us at (702) 638-8806.  

Guests
Since Family Promise is primarily comprised of volunteers, only guest families without active substance abuse, domestic violence, or severe mental illness are accepted. Many guests are employed during the day and go to work. During the school year, children attend school.

Day Center
The Day Center is the hub. Guests are brought from the hostng congregations to the Day Center from 7 am to 5 pm, their daytime home base. Here, homeless families work one on
one with a professional case manager to look for employment and housing and address problems that stand in the way of permanent independent housing for these families. The
Day Center also provides families a mailing address, a place to shower, and a place to do laundry.

Our Interfaith Shelter Network is unique to our community. When we opened our doors in 1996 we were the only shelter program that could keep parents together in the same room with children with no separation by gender. We can provide services to single parents with children, especially single fathers. We are one of only two existing shelter programs in our community that can provide shelter for single fathers. Dual parent families for us are defined as two parents in partnership to provide a nurturing and safe environment for their children. We have welcomed grandparents with their grandchildren through our doors as well.

The heart of our shelter program is the partnership from over 26 interfaith congregations across Clark County; Catholic, Jewish, Muslim Protestant, and Unitarian Universalist. We began our network with 12 congregations and over the past 17 years have grown to a network of 26 interfaith partners. All with a common goal to provide shelter and hospitality to families that need a place to call home while they work on goals to get back to work and into their own home again.

Our Day Center is a place to call home during the day. From 7 a.m. to 5 p.m. daily, case managers work with each family to develop a personal plan. Children go to school, daycare or the Boys and Girls Clubs. Our Day Center looks and feels like home. There are showers, a laundry room, closets for personal belongings, access to internet, phones and fax. Our van drivers transport our families to the evening host site around 4:30 p.m. daily to be greeted by the host coordinator and the evening volunteers.
