Heartland Hosts Family Promise
Family Promise is a nationwide network that provides a specialized and effective program for families with children experiencing homelessness.
Family Promise's Interfaith Hospitality Network, a partnership of local congregations including Heartland, offers an opportunity for volunteers of all faiths to help transform lives by providing shelter, meals and hope to local families in need.
Volunteers are the heart of the program. By giving their time making meals and sharing hospitality, family homelessness is addressed without the creation of expensive shelters.
