Class of Housing: Transitional Housing, Emergency Shelter for families.

General Information:

Family Promise rescues primarily first time homeless families from the streets and provides emergency shelter and basic needs in a program designed to assist their return to self-sufficiency.  Our program strives to keep the family together, including the family pet – our shelter includes a pet sanctuary, the first such program in Arizona. 
The Family Promise Emergency Shelter Program provides more than just shelter.  We help families cope with their current housing crisis and teach them life-skills that enables them to return to independent living and self-sufficiency.  Clients in this program are served during the day at our Day Center and are transported by van to hosting congregations at night.  There volunteers prepare and serve our families dinner, provide safe sleeping quarters, play with the children, help students with their homework, and provide companionship to their parents.  Each morning the families are transported back to our Day Center where they have access to showers and laundry facilities, clothing and meals, play areas for the children, the internet and computers for job and housing searches, and case management, counseling and life-skills training.

 

Transitional program is composed of 5 units including one-bedroom and two-bedroom units on site. We have been able to remodel our lovely units thanks to our volunteers and generous donations from donors and grantors. We are still in the process of adding vinyl flooring to each unit. Our families are eligible to apply for one of the units once they receive a job while in our emergency shelter program. While in transitional housing our families are welcome to stay up to a 6 month period. They also receive 1 hour of case management a week, similar to the Emergency Shelter Program. The goal of this program is to provide support to our families while they accumulate savings to become self-sufficient.

Fees may apply for this Transitional Housing resource. Contact Family Promise Transitional Housing Program with the contact information we provided to get full details. Oftentimes you can apply for sliding scale fee payment or other options if you are low income. You will need to speak with them to see if you qualify.
