Family Promise Of Lawrence



Family Promise is committed to helping families in Lawrence achieve lasting independence. We do this by mobilizing congregations and other community resources to provide safe shelter, meals, and support services for homeless families in a child-friendly environment. Current services include congregational rotation providing shelter, Call to Community mentoring program, case management, life skills training, and temporary housing.

Our mission is to transform the lives of homeless children and their families by providing safe shelter, food, counseling, and training in partnership with local communities of faith through hospitality and daily living support in a compassionate setting. The program is designed to address the needs of families and equip them to move into permanent housing as quickly as possible. Family Promise of Lawrence opened in November of 2008. In the past five years Family Promise has served 50 family units. One out of every three congregations in Lawrence is involved in Family Promise. In 2011 Family Promise was able to add transitional housing properties to our services. This has doubled the capacity of the program and greatly increased our ability to help the community.
