The Reality of Family Homelessness
Every day throughout the year, mothers and fathers are striving to provide for their children. But on any given night in our area, hundreds of people will be homeless, wondering where their next meal will come from or where they will be able to sleep that evening.
Families are the fastest growing segment of the homeless population, over 40% of which is families with children. Studies estimate between 1.5-2.5 million children are homeless in the United States. This means one out of every 30-50 children are homeless. The Oregon Department of Education is predicting a 45% increase in identified homeless students in school year 20-21 due to the effects of Covid-19.
Children experiencing homelessness can have increased and chronic health problems, struggle in school both academically and socially, and have an estimated graduation rate of around 60%.
Family Promise was opened to help eliminate the growing population of homeless families. Shelters fill up quickly and some segregate by age or gender. Family Promise is unique in that we keep the family together during this process. No parent wants to split up their family.
