What We Do

Family Promise of Cobb County is here to help families who are homeless and have minor children. Our goal is to provide their basic needs for up to 90 days while they work and save 50-80% of their income towards future housing.

We are NOT an “emergency shelter”.  We cannot intake a family on the same day of an inquiry call as we are a transitional shelter.

Families wishing to use our free services:

  • Must have minor children in their custody.
  • May not be using drugs/alcohol (we drug screen).
  • May not have felony records (we background check).
  • May not have severe mental health diagnosis.
  • Adults in the family must be able and willing to be employed FULL time.
  • Families should have some recent history (in last 2 years) of some steady independent housing and employment history.


Families in need should call us at 678-594-3150 to discuss their situation.
