FAMILY PROMISE


Since 1986, Family Promise (formerly the Interreligious Fellowship for the Homeless) has played a pivotal role in serving thousands of Bergen County’s homeless, hungry, and needy families and individuals. The IRF became Family Promise in February 2010 and is dedicated to providing shelter and support to working families who become homeless. Family Promise’s mission is to provide hospitality to the homeless and to keep families together in times of crisis. Since 1991, The Family Promise Walk-In Dinner Program has provided dinner to approximately 150 people in the community every night. It is the only organization in Bergen County that provides services and support for working families who are experiencing temporary periods of homelessness. Family Promise is a national organization with 199 affiliates in 42 states.
