Our City. Our Family.

We work with Philly families in times of crisis to prevent eviction, find shelter, and provide access to safe, affordable housing.
Prevention & Diversion Services.

We collaborate with families, landlords, and other agencies to prevent family homelessness.

Emergency Housing & Relocation.

We partner with caring congregations, landlords, and hotels to provide each family with the privacy and space they need.

Our Services

Our approach is customized to address each family's specific and unique challenges.

Keeping Our Promise to families this winter!
Join our campaign to meet the needs of the hundreds of families not supported by city or state funding and rely 100% on community donations.

Learn all about our campaign and what we've done so far this year together.

Innovative Housing Solutions

We do what it takes to get families housed. We provide deposit assistance, shallow rent subsidies, and insurance to landlords who rent to families with poor credit who enroll in our tenant training program.

Children & Youth Services

Each family member matters. We provide clothing, diapers, school supplies, art therapy, counseling, and trauma-informed care to help children learn and thrive.

Ongoing Support

Our relationship with families extends for years as their needs evolve. This looks like education and career counseling, family therapy, and/or financial guidance amongst other services. With this type of support, family members even become volunteers themselves and "pay it forward". 

Our Approach Works.

Together we can help rebuild lives.

92% of families never return to a shelter after working with our team.

We Are Community.

We have proudly served Philadelphia families since 1991 with the help of our dedicated staff, interfaith communities, donors, volunteers, local business owners and grantmakers. 


What began as a handful of small interfaith communities around the country  has now become an organization comprised of more than 200 Affiliates across 43 states. Today, Family Promise is the nation’s leading non-profit combatting family homelessness.

Formerly known as the Philadelphia Interfaith Hospitality Network, we have officially become Family Promise of Philadelphia. Though the name is new, our interfaith community response to family homelessness remains the same.

We Are Proud of Our Accomplishments.

Since Covid began, we’ve delivered $1.35 Million in aid directly to families.

  I feel amazing , and never could have made this tremendous progress without Family Promise of Philadelphia. I appreciate all of you.
