Family Promise of Northern New Castle County helps homeless families with children move toward lasting independence by providing a safe place to eat and sleep, intensive case management, life skills training, support, and encouragement. We do this through a network of congregations that host the families directly in their houses of worship, staffed by caring volunteers who have put their faith into action. We have successfully placed over 80% of our families into their own housing in less than 70 days since we began services in 2010.  We are a housing-first model with wrap-around services continuing for the families for at least 6mo-1year after they graduate from our network and move into their own housing. We are growing and adding a Case Manger to our team to provide quality services and to increase how many families we can serve.
