Family Promise of Knoxville
November 20, 2012

As far as I know, Family Promise is the only organization in Knoxville that serves families - that is their purpose- to provide housing that keeps moms and dads and their children together during their time of temporary homelessness. Additionally, Family Promise provides transportation, parenting classes, financial classes, and the tools for finding jobs as well as sustainable housing. I am a volunteer at one of the host churches. So for one week, about 3 times per year, I am able to interact with the families and see their appreciation for the program and hear about the success stories when the next family moves into more permanent housing. Family Promise provides that life-line and is desparately needed in this community.
