We are Family Promise Salt Lake

Giving families the support they need to find long-term independence

The Family Promise experience through the words of guests, staff, and volunteers.

We work with faith communities throughout the area to provide resources for families facing homelessness. With the support of the community, we help children and families build long-term stability.

Family Promise Salt Lake and our dedicated volunteers have been helping families in the Salt Lake area for decades. Faith congregations throughout our community help us feed, house, and serve families and children experiencing homelessness. With your support, we can make a lasting impact on our community and continue to serve those who need it most.

Thank you for visiting Family Promise Salt Lake!

We are here and we are continuing our mission to provide safe, family emergency shelter and basic needs to families with children experiencing homelessness. Although family emergency shelter looks different right now, it is still very much needed. We have over 40 families in our shelter, housing and aftercare (graduate) programs, and are continuously reminded how extremely difficult it is to be going through this pandemic without a home, or the insecurity of maintaining housing stability. In addition to safe shelter, we’re providing families with basic needs; we’re connecting families to mainstream resources, and most importantly, we’re helping families move home. We are here, and we stand with our resilient families and children. Family Promise is the leader in providing family emergency shelter and we will continue to do this work during these unprecedented times.

Our Impact

Homelessness is a growing concern in our community, but with your help, we’re making a real, lasting, and sustainable impact in the lives of children and families throughout Salt Lake County.
