Who We Are
We are congregations practicing hospitality to stand together against homelessness and to see lives changed; including our own.
Our name, Family Promise of Greater Kingsport, reflects our targeted vision and the broad range of programs to end family homelessness in our community. Our name refers to the promise that local congregations and others in our community make to the families we serve. This highlights the promise, the potential, and the inherent value in every family.
Since opening our doors in 2000, we have served thousands of individuals — and over 2,000 families with children. Last year alone, several families with children were successfully housed and able to maintain those homes, reflecting our 98% success rate of helping families build a life of self-sufficiency.
We remain committed to the practice of hospitality and our core program, the self-sufficiency shelter program. We are deeply grateful to everyone who has worked over the past 20+ years to dream, establish, support, and sustains the success at Family Promise of Greater Kingsport. Homeless families are transformed, obtain housing, and increased their quality of living. We look forward to continuing to build on that success working alongside people like you.
