General Information:
Our mission is to reduce homelessness for children and their families in Anderson County by uniting local congregations through an Interfaith Hospitality Network to provide shelter, food and the necessary tools needed for the families to regain their independence. Lodging for qualified families is provided by congregations of faith (Host Congregations). Host Congregations located across Anderson County provide lodging space for our guest one week at a time.  Each Host Congregation has a team of volunteers who designate their time and resources to express hospitality to FPAC guest.  Volunteers provide fellowship, hot dinners served in a "family style" setting, breakfast and lunch items for the guest to take with them during the day. Transitional Housing:  Our transitional housing program is designed for guest who may need extra time to take care of obstacles that will hinder them from entering into permanent housing. Guest that have successfully completed the IHN program may apply for this program in hopes to extend their stay and receive services.

Transitional housing is affordable supportive housing designed to provide housing and appropriate support services to persons who are homeless or who are close to homelessness. The transition is to help them be more self sufficient to move towards independent living on their own. Transitional housing locations are oftentimes called Halfway Houses. The naming of the two (Halfway House OR Transitional House) is oftentimes interchangeable.
