Family Promise of Greater Des Moines


Mission Statement: To mobilize our community to help homeless families achieve stable housing and income through compassionate care, hospitality and professional support. Family Promise of Greater Des Moines provides a way for our community to respond to homeless families with children and enables religious groups to unite hearts and hands to provide shelter, meals, and compassionate assistatnce to homeless families with children. In the FPGD program, a host congregation furnishes clean, safe, overnight lodging and nutritious meals for three to five families (up to 14 guests) for one week every three months. During host week, other congregations and volunteers may provide additional support by making healthy breakfasts and suppers, playing with children or helping them study, and talking with parents after a long day. Guest families are transported to/from the host congregation to the day center where shower, laundry, and social service assistance is provided.
