Ending homelessness on the Palouse, one family at a time.
Did you know families comprise nearly 40% of all who are homeless and more than 15% of Americans live in poverty, including one in five children (22%), the highest rate in the industrialized world?
Family Promise of the Palouse is a nonprofit organization that operates through an Interfaith Hospitality Network (IHN) to provide immediate shelter to homeless families in our community while helping people achieve lasting independence. Our IHN is a partnership of interfaith congregations in our community helping families who are facing homelessness. We are an affiliate of the national Family Promise program that has served over 400,000 people – mostly children – over the past 20 years.
We are actively hosting families with the help of our network and since accepting our first family on October 24, 2013, we have provided over 1,300 nights of shelter to our guests.
