Family Promise

Purpose/Mission  

Family Promise of the Midlands (FPM) brings together people of faith to help the sizeable and sometimes unseen population of homeless families in our midst. FPM is a non-profit organization that engages houses of worship to provide shelter, meals and support to homeless families. FPM is part of the national Family Promise network, which was founded in 1986 and supports similar initiatives in more than 180 U.S. communities.

Activities Eastminster hosts families for one week at a time, approximately four times a year. Activities include getting rooms ready, preparing meals, interacting with the families in the evenings, and spending the night at the church.
