Frequently Asked Questions
What is the 59 Minutes with Family Promise campaign?
The time to pay attention to families at risk in our community is now. Family Promise of Spokane is notorius for pivoting towards opportunities that equip families and communities to end the cycle of homelessness. For over 17 months, Family Promise has been anticipating the tsunami of need following the COVID-19 pandemic.

This need compels us to invite the community learn more about what is going on regarding family homelessness, tell the stories of real families facing instability and encourage us to unite together to overcome the challenges in the months ahead.
