There are hundreds of families and over 1,000 children living without a home in St. Tammany Parish today. Most of these families have hard-working parents who simply can’t make ends meet to pay their rent or mortgage. At Family Promise we're doing everything we can to help these families and their children, get back on their feet, emotionally, financially, mentally & spiritually.
Family Promise of St. Tammany is one of over 200 local Family Promise affiliates across 41 states. It provides homeless children and their families with safe & comfortable shelter, meals, and compassionate support. Local congregations throughout St. Tammany Parish host up to five families (14 people) at a time on a weekly rotating schedule. Host congregation volunteers may share meals and fellowship with families, play with and tutor the children, and act as overnight hosts.

During the day, families in the program receive social service and job counseling as well as casework assistance at the Family Promise Day Center.
