The mission of Family Promise of Western New York is to unite religious and other organizations in responding to the needs of homeless families in our community. Uniting hearts and hands, the network provides a way for homeless families to receive temporary shelter, meals, and assistance while seeking their own independence.
It's more than providing shelter, meals and support. It's about keeping entire families together while they work toward having a home to call their own.
Did you know that in 2015, Family Promise of WNY provided a total of 1,948 bed nights and over 5,000 meals to 19 families, including 30 adults and 46 children?
This was accomplished thanks to an army of over 500 volunteers, providing more than 8,000 hours of compassionate service, which allows Family Promise of WNY to provide $3 of in-kind service for each dollar raised.
