Family Promise

Family Promise of Lawrence

The mission of Family Promise is "Helping homeless families with children achieve and maintain permanent housing."

Families that graduate from the main Family Promise program often move into one of several Family Promise transitional homes that are an intermediary step from homelessness to independent living.

Lawrence Free Methodist Church partners with Family Promise in two key ways.  We provide financial support for one of their transition homes. We also are a hosting church, and our support churches are Lawrence Heights Christian Church and Good Shepherd Lutheran Church.

Once per quarter, LFMC hosts Family Promise guests for a week at our church, with the help of volunteers from LFMC and our support churches, who provide food, serve as meal hosts, or serve as overnight hosts. The 2019 hosting schedule at LFMC is as follows:

February 10-17
May 19-26
August 21-September 1
November 24-December 1
