A New Promise on Park Place

Wells Fargo Bank generously donated the Promise House property to our program last year and we are currently in the process of remolding these units for our future guests. Through a matching grant program with First Community Foundation Partnership of Pennsylvania, countless volunteer hours, and generous donations from other community business donors, we hope to complete the renovations by early 2017.


The Promise House Property

Our families will be eligible to apply for one of these units once they have successfully met the graduation requirements of the Family Promise program. Our families are welcome to stay at Promise House for up to 18-24 months. Families will continue to receive case management and other support services from Family Promise to help ensure that they do not slip back into the behavioral patterns that led to homelessness and that the changes Family Promise has guided them to make are lifelong.
