Family Promise of Waukesha County
Family Promise of Waukesha County is an affiliate of a National Organization. It was developed to provide a collaborative community effort linking existing community resources together to provide cost effective shelter, meals, and support services to local homeless children and their families, assisting them to achieve and sustain independence.
This collaborative effort relies on the participation of significant in-kind support of host congregations and support congregations in our area. These congregations provide the meals, hospitality, and volunteer support from 5:30 pm to approximately 7:00 am daily. Each congregation agrees to host up to four times a year for one week at a time. We currently have support from 20 congregations in Western Waukesha County and we continue to seek more.
Since opening our doors we have impacted the lives of over 10 families and we continue to grow.
