Star of Hope
This holiday season, help fulfill the promise of every child deserving a home by learning more about Family Promise and how you can help children searching for a star of hope in your community.
The Family Promise Star holds great symbolism, not only for our organization but also for the people we serve. Each point of the star represents the core components of what makes our organization successful. Our success is attributed to the five key elements of Family Promise: Shelter, Prevention, Stabilization, Community, and Promise. The star represents hope for a brighter future for the children we serve

600 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.
