800 children in Alachua County schools are experiencing homelessness.

Every child in our community should have a bed to sleep in at night.

Since 1998, Family Promise of Gainesville has provided families experiencing homelessness with compassionate care that includes shelter, case management, education, housing, meals and transportation until they can transition to a home of their own.


We work to avoid the trauma of a family losing their home before it happens.


 Our shelter models ensure the right fit for a family. 


Programming like tenancy training after shelter helps families remain housed.


We provide affordable housing through apartments that we own.

"As my journey is ending with Family Promise of Gainesville, it's a new start for me with a new perspective on life. Thank you for the tools you left me with, but most importantly, thank you for the impression you left on my heart."
