Hi there. 
In this busy world, we want to take a moment to stop and let you know how thankful we are for having so  much support from the greater Gainesville area.  

Please read below to find out ways to continue that support Family Promise in the coming months. 

Happy holidays, 
The families and staff from 
Family Promise of Gainesville.

#GivingTuesday is Nov. 28th
Childhood homelessness has doubled in Florida over the last 7 years.  Now more than ever we need your help to stop the trauma of childhood homelessness and make a brighter future for local kids. 

Please take a moment to read our holiday letter. This year we have added two new affordable housing programs, Rapid Rehousing and Partners in Housing; and added a summer art curriculum for kids called PhotoVoice.
Family Promise has already served 37.5% more people than 2016 and we are still working hard to serve more families in need. Help kids like Sandy and Semyah by  donating online to support our shelter operations
