Family Promise of Bergen County

Emergency Shelter for homeless working families.

The Family Promise Network is a sheltering program for homeless families with dependent children, accommodating up to 14 people at a time. Local congregations host the families overnight on a weekly rotating basis. Volunteers from host congregations, as well as neighboring support congregations, provide meals, discreet sleep areas and needed encouragement. Families have access to a FP run day center from 7 AM until 6 PM to pursue better employment, affordable housing, showers, laundry, etc. Case management to prepare the families for re-entry into the community is a key element of this program.
