Family Promise by the Numbers
Simple Stats = Huge Impact
Since opening our doors in 2010 Family Promise of the Verdugos has helped get 1,998 individuals from living on the streets or in their cars and back into housing. We are just getting started!
To assist families experiencing homelessness in gaining independence by transitioning into permanent housing and employment, with the support of our community.
OUR FIVE CORE PROGRAMS
Since opening our doors in 2010 we have operated a 90-day shelter for homeless families with children. The program works in partnership with local congregations as we focus on temporary shelter, meals, case management and housing.
The Rapid Rehousing program helps transition homeless families with children into permanent housing. Families are provided up to 12 months of rental subsidies. Then, our trained Case Managers work alongside families to set benchmarks that focus on stability.
In partnership with local government agencies Family Promise provides case management and rental assistances to families at-risk of homelessness.
In 2018 Family Promise partnered with City of Burbank and Burbank Housing Corporation to open a transitional housing program, Jerry's Promise, to provide short term housing for homeless families.
As part of our 2020 merger with fellow nonprofit homeless provider, Glendale Communitas Initiative, Family Promise offers community workshops focused on job development, financial planning, and life skills.
