An interfaith alliance helping children and families experiencing homelessness achieve lasting self-sufficiency.
Our organization works with faith communities to provide emergency housing assistance for families throughout Salt Lake county. Congregations in the community open their doors and provide families with much-needed shelter while they transition to a more long-term solution.
The number of families experiencing homelessness in Utah has grown in recent years. To address this growing crisis, Family Promise – Salt Lake is working diligently to provide transitional housing for families, as well as long-term solutions that help families in need to succeed after going through our program.
Family Promise is committed to serving families in need and doing our part to minimize the impact of homelessness on families—and especially children.
The Family Promise Day Center gives families in need access to shower and laundry facilities, computers, day-time meals, and transportation assistance. Families are able to use our Day Center address for housing and job applications while in the program.
Our team works to support parents through intensive case management plans. We also advocate for the services and assistance families need to regain their self-sufficiency.
Statistics show that once families are assisted into housing, on-going case management services, such as rent and utility assistance, budgeting assistance, referrals to government and community service etc., help them remain housed. Family Promise offers two years of post-shelter case management through our Housing Retention Program to help stabilize a family going through the crisis of homelessness.
