The Impact of Family Promise on Southern Chester County
Changing Lives, Keeping Families Together, Achieving Lasting Success
Family Promise helped 52 families (67 adults and 112 children) find stable employment and sustainable housing since it opened in November 2015.
Family Promise of Southern Chester County utilizes the time and talents of hundreds of volunteers and a network of congregations to provide over 10,000 meals and 3,500 bed nights annually for families experiencing homelessness in our community.
We believe that families should stay together—not be separated—during a difficult time in their life. Families achieve stability and success together. Under our program, children can continue to go to the same school They keep the same friends, are educated by the same teachers, and their education is not interrupted. We arrange for transportation to school and provide a home address that students can use.
Our families take an average of 60 days to find stable housing because of our intensive case management and community support that continues even after families leave the program. Our goal is for families to achieve long-term sustainability and independence in their home.
