Family Promise of Greater Cleveland grew out of the shared mission and close collaboration of New Life Community and Interfaith Hospitality Network of Greater Cleveland. After two years of careful planning, in 2011 the Boards of Directors voted to combine organizations and become Family Promise of Greater Cleveland.
Family Promise of Greater Cleveland is an affiliate of national Family Promise. The national Family Promise network includes over 160 affiliates spread throughout the United States - all with a mission of serving homeless families. Each affiliate is a separate 501 (c) (3) non-profit entity, free to create programs to meet local community needs but connected to a pool of resources in homeless services research and best practices, government relations and advocacy to have an even stronger voice for homeless families.
Family Promise of Greater Cleveland is also a partner in the local Cuyahoga County Continuum of Care, working collaboratively with the local Office of Homeless Services; the community's Coordinated Intake system; and other providers committed to serving homeless individuals and families in Greater Cleveland.
