Our Mission

Our mission is to help homeless and low-income families achieve sustainable independence through a community-based response.  We meet personal needs by providing resources like case management, hygiene essentials, temporary lodging, vital resource recovery, and rent and utility relief through engagement with local community partners.

Programs & Services

Family Promise provides resources to families with children experiencing homelessness in Albany County. We work with a network of community support partners to both prevent homelessness, and help families transition out of homelessness. We also operate a diaper and hygiene pantry that is available to the broader community.

Who We Are

Family Promise of Albany County is an affiliate of the Family Promise National organization that has been serving families experiencing homelessness since 1986.

We measure our success in how many families we successfully graduate into sustainable, independent housing. We stay in contact with our clients even after graduation to ensure a successful transition into their new living situations. Our programs are driven by our dedicated staff, caring volunteers, and generous donors like you.
