Gainesville, FL - 32601

Shelter for homeless families with children. There is currently a waiting list.

In order to be accepted must go through an extensive interview process.

Family Promise unites and coordinates the collaborative efforts of volunteers from all faiths to shelter and feed homeless families. Families are housed in area houses of worship, where congregation members provide meals, transportation, and companionship for the guest families.



Families living in our shelter program have dinner, spend the night and eat breakfast at local churches or synagogues for one week at a time on a rotating schedule.  This allows the entire community to share in caring for their neighbors.

    The volunteers are community residents who recognize that any family can lose its home, and that it takes time to find affordable housing.

    The Case Manager meets with families at least once a week to discuss housing and employment possibilities and to assist in finding social services that may be helpful to families.

    During the day, the Day Center serves as home for all guests.  When not working or in school, guests can do laundry, take showers and receive case management. They may use this address and phone number as their contact information.

    FP may provide transportation to doctors appointments, job searches, job interviews, and social service appointments, etc. during the hours of 9am and 4pm.
