Glorifying the Lord With Our Lives

Family Promise of Whatcom County

Family Promise is a national initiative that is locally run by the Interfaith Coalition. It is a community effort by local parishes and congregations to each provide one week of housing and meals for up to five families (14 individuals maximum) four times per year. The goal of the initiative is to help the families involved move from homelessness to housing and the success rate is extremely high because of the holistic approach of the program.
