Congregational Shelter Program

The Family Promise Congregational Shelter Program offers temporary housing for families transitioning out of homelessness. Families in the program stay for one week at a time in area churches while they secure permanent homes.  It is with great joy that Family Promise is re-opening the shelter program. We are excited to announce that we are hosting families on our Winter Park campus November 13-20.
