Thanks you again for your support of homeless children and families in Northern New Castle County!

We extend our deepest gratitude for your support in 2011!

  • Merci” to supporters of our Annual Appeal.  The financial contributions support our families to achieve lasting independence through our hospitality network and case management services.
  • “Gracias” to those who donated their time and services!  Interested in reaping the reward of volunteering through our Day Center? Contact us for more info! info@familypromisede.org.
  • “Mahalo” to all the in-kind donations! Our families received a new washer machine at the Day Center, one family received a donated car and another received much needed brake repairs.  

Keep the support coming!
Our  families are blessed because of your hospitality, help and hope!

Action! Action! Read all about it! Family Promise on Action News!

Channel 6 ABC News visited us! Our affiliate was one of five nationally to receive 200 comforters to give to a homeless child.  This was part of their Buy One , Give One campaign which has been extended through March!  For every comforter purchased, one will be donated to Family Promise.  Enter BOGO20 at www.thecompanystore.com and save 20%! We shared our blessings and gave comforters to Ministry of Caring, YWCA and Salvation Army!
