Mission & Vision
Family Promise of Tualatin Valley was formed as a grass roots effort in October, 2016 and opened its doors to serving families experiencing homelessness in March, 2019. As a non-profit organization, our mission is to help families achieve sustainable housing and independence through a community-based response. We accomplish this by providing emergency shelter and wraparound services that include extensive case management, family mentoring, and life skills training such as budgeting. We receive referrals from our support networks in Washington and Clackamas counties.
The Family Promise Vision
Founded in 1988, Family Promise is a nationwide program that is dedicated to serving families with children who are homeless or at risk of homelessness. Local affiliates organize congregations, civic organizations, social service agencies and community members into volunteer coalitions.
The Family Promise of Tualatin Valley affiliate was formed as a separate and independent 501(c)3 organization to provide services to local families. We have 18 church and civic organizations partners that assist us in providing evening shelter, meals and community to those we serve. While we greatly appreciate our churches and rely heavily upon them to make our program work, Family Promise of Tualatin Valley is not religious-based or affiliated.
