Family Promise addresses homelessness by utilizing the resources of static locations, ie parsonages. On average, permanent or transitional housing is typically secured for 74% of families in less than twelve weeks. In addition to helping families secure housing, Family Promise also provides a number of other services to families, including transportation, financial literacy, workforce development, legal assistance, health and wellness support, graduate support and prevention.
Displaced or homeless families should contact Garden State Episcopal at (201) 209-9301 or the homeless hotline at 211.
