"How can one avoid being depressed when he sees with his own eyes evidences of millions of people going to bed hungry at night? How can one avoid being depressed when he sees with his own eyes God’s children sleeping on the sidewalks at night?" - Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.
Family Promise can't accomplish our mission with out the support of our community
Host and Support Congregations provide support for our families at there local congregation, which include meals, evening activities, a place to sleep for the night and caring relationships.
Social services agencies: Family Promise works in collaboration with other agencies in Skagit Valley to provide families with the best assistance possible to attain employment, housing, and other needed services.
Volunteers: without people who are committed to the mission of Family Promise, we would not succeed; their help makes our work possible.
Donors: over 1100 donors and sustaining partners, local businesses, churches, fraternal organizations and foundations complete our network.
