OUR MISSION: is to come together as a community to support homeless families as they work to provide their children with loving homes.
AN INTRODUCTION TO FAMILY PROMISE: The Family Promise of Skagit Valley experience through the words of guests, staff and volunteers.
Create home like accommodations: rather than being separated based on gender or age, families stay together in an environment that is comfortable, private, and safe.
Cost efficiency: low expenses are maintained by using existing community facilities and resources, and by relying on volunteers.
Comprehensive services: families are given support with finding employment and housing.
Networking: local congregations come together to work as a united community to serve families in need.
Provide educational experience: for both the guests and the volunteers.
Building communities and strengthening lives: We do this by adapting and building gaps to serves based on the needs of Skagit Valley. This is only possible through a team approach with local, churches, community members and businesses networking together to shine a light in the darkness for homeless families in Skagit Valley.
