    Family Promise of the Midlands Director Kathleen McLean-Titus.
    Join us in a holiday welcome to Family Promise of the Midlands, in Columbia, South Carolina. This marks the eighth Affiliate to open in the Palmetto State.

    The need is great--Columbia has no shelters that can take in older boys and men. In the more affluent of Richland County’s two school districts, one in 750 children is classified as homeless. In the other, there are 400 children without homes.

  • A New Affiliate Opens in Wisconsin

    We are proud to welcome Family Promise of Western Waukesha County, Wisconsin. This is our eighth Affiliate in the Badger State. Waukesha County is due west of Milwaukee and the Affiliate serves the western, more small-town area also known as Lake Country.

    It began when a UCC pastor wondered what to do about the frequent requests for help he was getting from families in the community. A previous service effort had failed and they wanted to turn to Family Promise for a successful template.

  • Celebrating Transformation in Chicago

More than 325 people convened at the Hyatt Regency Schaumburg for a full weekend of workshops, speeches, exhibitions and entertainment as we took a few days to connect with friends—old and new—and share experiences in the fight against family homelessness.
