The Shelter

The Guest Center
Family Promise of Montgomery County Guest Center can serve up to Six (6) families at any given time in our Guest Center. We partner with churches and civic communities to assist with meals and overnight hosting for our families during their stay with us. We provide lodging, meals, transportation, case management, life skill classes, fellowship, and networking opportunities for our families.

 

While families stay in our Guest Center, they will receive holistic case management tailored to their individual family needs. Our Case Managers provide guidance, support, and family advocacy for each of our families and will assist them with their job search, applying for resources, finding childcare and enrolling their children into school, finding reliable transportation, and getting their essential needs met.


Participating families are encouraged to complete online Life Skills classes as per the Case Manager. Topics include Financial Management, Good Nutrition and Healthy Living, Good Parenting, Stress and Anger Management, and Safer Households Information. We empower families towards long term stability creating generational change. 

Guidance, support, and advocacy are provided to families as they strive to reach their goals through and individualized holistic approach.

A COMMUNITY RESPONSE

In every community, these core elements exist. By bringing the community together on the issue of family homelessness, Family Promise addresses a major social problem in a holistic, effective way. Once the community becomes engaged, people understand the root causes of family homelessness and take steps to address them. Family Promise Affiliates have created more than 1,700 community initiatives—housing programs, homelessness prevention, childcare and much more—that target the issues of poverty and homelessness on a local level.

A LONG-TERM SOLUTION

Not only does our 88% success rate mean many more families stably housed, it is also a tremendous cost saving to the community as diversion from far more expensive interventions. Our approach of keeping families together, identifying their strengths, and partnering with the community for solutions means that families are at much lower risk of returning to homelessness.

PLEASE TAKE NOTICE

Family Promise of Montgomery County participates in HMIS and a record of your stay and/or services received is being documented.
