The goal of Family Promise is to help homeless families in transition achieve sustainable independence by providing short-term shelter, meals, case management, and hospitality. The families live in the assembly space of each church or community center for a week at a time, shifting to the next location on Sunday morning.
Family Promise is a 99.99% volunteer program (650 volunteers to just 3 employees). They have just completed their first year of operation in the South Bay and have the support of 30 local churches and community organizations.
Las Candalistas is supporting a camp/activities program for children 5-14 years of age during winter, spring and summer vacations.
