most states across the country. The network has more than
115,000 volunteers from over 5,000 congregations of all denominations
nationwide, who have worked together in providing homeless
families with hospitality, support and basic needs. Family Promise
volunteers have helped make a difference in over 130,000
lives nationwide by helping homeless families get back on their feet.
