When we opened our doors on March 31, 2019 we had no idea that less than a year later so much would change and our program would become even more essential to our community and the families we serve.

As a program, we have continued to adapt and change as we navigate these unprecedented times. We have learned what our families need to truly be successful and have been working on building a program that fits these needs. One of the largest needs has been educational support.

In December of 2020 we received a grant from the Office of the Superintendent of Public Instruction (OSPI) to provide assistance to children experiencing homelessness in our community. In partnership with PAX learning center, we are opening a classroom that will be equipped to serve up to 25 children to support their education through virtual and hybrid learning.

Families with children in the program will have access to a family living room and will receive case management services. Not only will their children be receiving the educational support they need, but these families will be have a warm and safe space to work on their employment and housing goals.

We are so excited for this opportunity to provide a much needed service to the Camas/Washougal community, but we need your help! We have a classroom and living room to furnish and our grant funding can only stretch so far. If you would like to help please follow the link below to see what we need.

If you are interested in volunteering with this program, please email us at info@familypromiseofclarkco.org.

We thank you for your continued support over the last nearly 2 years and look forward to what 2021 will bring!

To our family and friends, The health of our volunteers, staff and guests is very important to Family Promise of Clark County. We have developed a plan to ensure we are responding adequately and appropriately to all guidelines issued by federal, state, and local government. We will continue to stay informed and update these plans as things develop. If you would like to help support Family Promise of Clark County at this time, we are looking for donations to support our families as they shelter in place. Thank you.

We are continuing to support families as they shelter in place in hotel rooms. We are grateful for the continues support of the community as we navigate through this unprecedented time. The outpouring of community support has been phenomenal. A special thanks to our host congregations as they continue to provide meal provisions for families as well as care packages.

Although our families are currently sheltering in hotel rooms, we are actively seeking landlords willing to work with FPCC to rent out apartments, duplexes, etc. during this time.  This is a more cost effective solution than the current hotel rooms.  If you know of anyone willing and interested to work with us, please call the day center phone number at (360)210-5165.

Please see our volunteer page for volunteer opportunities.

Thank you all for your support during this time.

Beginning June 20, 2020 community members across the nation will be taking part in Family Promise’s first national Night Without a Bed sleepout to raise awareness and funds to support children and their families who are experiencing homelessness.

Family Promise of Clark County is adding a fun twist to their efforts by having a “Night Without a Bed Challenge.” With this challenge, community members will sleep 1 night anywhere besides the comfort of their own bed and encourage others to do the same. This could include sleeping in a car, in a tent, couch, or even on the living room floor.

To participate in the Night Without A Bed Challenge, you are encouraged to:

  1. Take the Night Without a Bed Challenge: and to post videos/pictures of their experience on Social Media using the hashtag: #nightwithoutabed and tagging @familypromiseofclarkcounty.

  2. Visit Family Promise of Clark County’s website and donate as you are able.

  3. Like and follow Family Promise of Clark County on Facebook.

  4. Challenge at least 3 of your friends to also take part in the challenge and share their experiences.

Please don’t wait to be challenged! If you desire to participate in this challenge, please accept our invitation to participate and begin challenging others to do the same!

Not on Facebook? No problem! Please share your experience with us by emailing us at info@familypromiseofclarkco.org and tell us about your experience! You are encouraged to also email us pictures and video messages of your experience, with the understanding that we are able to share your experiences with our community of supporters.

Our goal is to raise both awareness and funding so that we can continue our work in making sure children and their families have access to safe and affordable housing. Every $1 donated is matched three times over by community and in-kind resources.
