What is Family Promise?

Family Promise of Cobb County (FPCC) is part of a national Family Promise organization founded in 1986 to serve families in transition. FPCC is a nonprofit 501(c)(3), non- denominational organization. The Family Promise Network brings shelter, meals, and support services to families without homes through a network of local congregations.

FPCC’s non- traditional model is composed of:

Congregations: The hosting of families rotates weekly among  13 Host Congregations in the Network. In turn, each host congregation provides lodging, three meals a day, and caring hospitality 4-5 times a year. Support Congregations assist the Network by providing regular volunteers, meals, and funds.

Day Center: Guests use a local Day Center from 7:30 AM to 5:00 PM, where a director and professional social worker provide case management services. There, guests pursue housing, employment, care for pre-school children, shower, and do laundry.

Volunteers: Volunteers are essential to our success and provide a wide range of services like cooking and serving meals, playing with children or helping them with homework, interacting with guests with respect and compassion, and providing overnight security.

Fundraising: The organization is financed through donations, grants, and fundraising events.
