What Is family promise?


An affiliation of churches, social services, and community members, Family Promise is geared towards providing a hand up for homeless children and their families.

We at Family Promise want to be able to help children and their families in our community who are situationally homeless– helping them achieve sustainable independence through a community-based response.

And we, as a community in Cowlitz County, through Family Promise, want to provide the means necessary to help in times of crisis. Community to us is where families are valued for their talents- what they bring to the community. 

We are day by day building a place where people don’t just survive– they thrive.
