Family Promise® of Clark County is a nonprofit organization committed to help children and their families affected by homelessness in the Clark County, WA area.
Over 2200 children are without a fixed address in the Evergreen and Vancouver School districts. Over 3000 children are without a fixed address in all of Clark County.
Family Promise® welcomes families with children experiencing homelessness, puts them into immediate temporary shelter, gets the children to school, and assists parents with permanent long term solutions. It is an established and successful program, but we need help getting the program running here in Clark County and there are many ways to make a difference.

We began accepting guests on March 31st of this year. We do not provide drop-in services.
If you need emergency shelter right now please contact the Council for the Homeless Housing Hotline at 360-695-9677. All our guests will come from the Council for the Homeless.
We Need Day Center Volunteers!
Learn more about the different opportunities for volunteering, the process for becoming a volunteer, and the important role that Day Center Volunteers play in offering hospitality for our guests.
Our most urgent need is for volunteers who can agree to take one three-hour shift per month on Saturday or Sunday.
We publish the schedule in advance and you can sign up for the shift(s) that work for you during the month.
Day Center Trainings take one hour and introduce you to Family Promise of Clark County and the responsibilities of a Day Center Volunteer. You can view the schedule of upcoming trainings and register for a training at the link below.

Host Congregations provide one week of overnight hospitality for our guests, and Support Congregations assist with additional volunteers. We need at least 13 Host Congregations and at least as many Support Congregations.
We welcome participation from all faith traditions. Host and Support Congregations need to be from Clark County, and Host Congregations need a suitable space for up to three to five families.
