About Family Promise of Northern New Castle County
Family Promise of Northern New Castle County is a non-profit 501(c)3 organization that prevents and ends homelessness for families with children by engaging volunteers, donors and faith-based congregations. We envision a community in which all families have a home, a livelihood and the resources for lasting independence. With the support of over 40 congregations, we provide shelter, hospitality and assistance to families. We also serve families via community-based programming to help them secure housing without having to enter shelter. Over 75% of our families secure housing in less than 50 days.
We keep families together, serving single moms, single dads, two-parent households and all ages up children. We are an affiliate of the national Family Promise organization, which includes over 200 affiliates in 42 states.

“I had the opportunity to gain first-hand experiences working with people affected by homelessness in Palm Beach County. This was a great way for me to apply my studies to the real-world. Everything I learned from this internship I will be able to take with me throughout my career and make a difference in the world. ”
