In the United States today, one out of six children live in poverty. Families with children make up 35% of the people in this country who experience homelessness.
Family Promise of Greater Lafayette provides shelter, food, transportation, and case management services to families that qualify for our program.
We serve families that are residents of Tippecanoe County (or one of our surrounding counties) only. Every family will receive case management services that include but are not limited to help with accessing local resources (health insurance, food stamps, bus passes), budgeting, career building, employment, childcare, and housing.
Our program is available to families with minor children who are in a housing crisis. Most families are in our shelter program for 30-45 days. During that time, adults are asked to work closely with our case manager to address the barriers that are keeping them from living independently. Children are able to stay in their own school, and bus transportation will be arranged for them. Adults must remain clean and sober while in the program.
