ABOUT US

Who We Are

 

Every family deserves a home.

Family Promise of Waukesha County is a non-profit organization that assists local homeless families and their children. Families are provided with overnight shelter, meals, and support services with the goal of achieving permanent housing and sustainable independence.

We work with each family to create an individualized plan towards their self-sufficiency, and connect them with existing community services to find training, jobs and affordable housing.

Our local host and support congregations provide families with meals and overnight shelter.

*Families generally work through the program in 45-60 days.

Our Core Values:

  • We believe in the dignity of all persons and that they should be treated with equality, respect and compassion.
  • We believe in the potential for change and growth and that families with support and guidance, can determine their needs and future.
  • We strive to be wise and effective stewards of all of our resources (finances, time, people, property).
  • We believe in a holistic, creative and responsible approach as we collaborate with others to meet the needs of families.

Family Promise of Waukesha County is an affiliate of the national organization Family Promise. We serve families with children without regard to race, religion, gender, or age.
