We recognize that poverty is a multifaceted problem that requires a multifaceted response. We respond by integrating educational outreach, smart programming, effective policies, and the hands-on work of hundreds of volunteers. We provide food, shelter, and support services for homeless families during their transition to permanent housing. We provide guidance and advocacy for families experiencing a housing crisis.
Our Vision: Every child will have a home.
Family Promise of Beaufort County partners with local congregations, individuals, families, other social service agencies, foundations and businesses to provide shelter and viable solutions for families with children who are facing a housing crisis. Families are housed in Beaufort County’s houses of worship, where congregation members provide meals, essential needs and companionship for our guest families. The Family Promise staff provides comprehensive case management and assistance in securing employment, medical care, childcare, school placement and ultimately affordable housing.
The goal is to provide immediate shelter while equipping families with the knowledge and resources they need to sustain their lasting independence in a home of their own. Family Promise benefits the community in many ways:
