We are currently seeking new congregations / faith groups to add to our hosting schedule. Contact gnvfamilypromise@gmail.com for more information.

What does it mean to be a support church or organization? For as little as four days a year, your organization can provide a huge impact on the lives of local kids. 

There are 13 weeks in every quarter of the year.  We have 11 host churches, but need our 12th & 13th host sites.  Up to four families without a home live in local churches and synagogues every night of the year.  The faith congregations lend their facilities once per quarter--for a week. So our families may stay at one church for a week, then pack up and move to a new location on Sunday morning.
