Family Promise has had a drastic impact on Lancaster County. For nearly two years now, Lancaster area churches have reached out to homeless families in an effort to give them a lift.
Family Promise is a pioneering nonprofit organization dedicated to helping America’s low-income families secure lasting independence. Some 161 affiliates and 130,000 volunteers spanning 41 states provide annual assistance to more than 45,000 citizens.
In 1988, the program went national and moved into communities across the nation, including Lancaster.
