Who We Are
We imagine a future where no child experiences homelessness.
Contrary to common knowledge, family homelessness is the fastest growing segment of the homeless population in the United States today. Spokane County is no exception.
That's why Family Promise specializes in connecting homeless families with those in their own neighborhood, increasing support networks and re-enforcing the skills needed to maintain housing.

When Family Promise of Spokane began, it was a small, but comprehensive program for three homeless families at a time. Today, we serve over 1,100 family members each year as the only wraparound
program for homeless families in Eastern Washington.
Spearheaded by invested volunteers and talented staff, we prevent families from becoming homeless,
provide for families experiencing homelessness and prepare families for life beyond homelessness.
