Our history

Family Promise of Gainesville started in 1998
as a response to homelessness that existed in Alachua County. The organization is part of a larger network of shelter programs across the country serving as an affiliate of Family Promise.

Originally incorporated as the Interfaith Hospitality Network, the organization became Family Promise of Gainesville to reflect our broad range of programs and our vision of ending family homelessness.  


In-kind is raised for every $1 of direct donations


People in 115 families served last year


Of families we serve remain housed one year later

Impact that matters.

Together, we are changing the lives of local children and families in ways that matter through housing, meals, transportation, job certifications and budgeting training.
