Why We Exist

There is a severe shortage of affordable housing in America, exacerbated by rising rents and stagnant wages. With little or no safety net, one unforeseen expense or emergency can lead to family homelessness. We envision a nation where every family has a home, a livelihood, and the chance to build a better future.

VOLUNTEER WITH FAMILY PROMISE ROCHESTER
"You can give any kind of skill to give back. You'll learn a lot as a volunteer. And when you meet folks that may be very different from yourself, it's an eye opener. You never know what a person has been through, how they ended up in a certain situation. All you can do is help." - Bob, a Family Promise Volunteer in Pennsylvania
