About Family Promise

In 1986, a group in New Jersey recognized the unique issue of family homelessness and began Family Promise. Now there are 200 affiliates in 41 states that utilize over 160,000 volunteers and Family Promise of Yellowstone Valley is one of them.

Family Promise is a community of 26 Billings faith-based congregations and over 1400 volunteers that put their faith into action to provide meals, shelter, and a safe, non-judgmental environment for families experiencing homelessness. Our congregation “hosts” take turns on a weekly rotating basis providing hospitality and basic needs to our homeless “guests.”

Every family receives intensive case management support, mentoring, and guidance while they look for jobs and housing. The Family Promise program is about compassion and accountability, and families are expected to work hard to accomplish their goals and regain housing. Our purpose is not to shelter and feed as many people as possible, but rather to have a lasting positive impact on families that go through our program. In the words of one “graduated” mom who is now living, with her son, in her own home, “Family Promise was hard but it changed my life.”
