Thank You For Joining Us At Our
Pathway To Home: Enduring Promise & Hope Annual Breakfast

We are so grateful for everything our volunteers, supporters, staff, and board do for our organization!

Our Annual Breakfast went incredibly smooth!

As with last year, our event was held digitally via zoom but despite the constantly changing world around us, we adapted and continued on our mission of serving those most in need.

While our Virtual Breakfast offered a wonderful opportunity to come together, we're hoping that we'll be able to meet again in person next year! 

We are truly grateful to everyone who participated! Your support continues to help us serve families experiencing homelessness in these difficult times.

Thank you for sticking with us as we continue to adapt to our changing world, we couldn't do this without you!

Volunteer Spotlight!

Deborah Buckels from Resurrection Parish

This month we highlight Deborah Buckels from Resurrection Parish.

Deborah has been volunteering with Family Promise since 2015, and has been an active donor for 10 years! Read below to see her favorite part of volunteering for Family Promise:

"My favorite part of volunteering is meeting and interacting with the families. It so warms my heart when I can bring a smile to a young child's face or listen to a mom as she shares how she is struggling to take care of her children while finding a place to live. On one occasion I had the privilege of meeting a young girl with her dad after suffering abuse from her mom and I asked if she would like me to paint her nails. She immediately said "yes" and the next night we shared some special time as I painted her fingernails and toenails, all the while her dad looked on with a smile that said it all! Moments like this will stay with me forever and give me the reason to continue helping out families dealing with homelessness. I am so blessed to be part of this ministry!"

Thank you Deborah for all you do for our organization!


Family Promise Earns Perfect Score and 9th Consecutive 4-Star Rating from Charity Navigator

"Summit, NJ – Sept. 16, 2021 – Family Promise’s strong financial health and commitment to accountability and transparency have earned it a 4-star rating from Charity Navigator, America’s largest independent charity evaluator. This is the 9th consecutive time that Family Promise has earned this top distinction, including a perfect score of 100 out of 100 points.

Since 2002, using objective analysis, Charity Navigator has awarded only the most fiscally responsible organizations a 4-star rating. In 2011, Charity Navigator added 17 metrics, focused on governance and ethical practices as well as measures of openness, to its ratings methodology. These Accountability & Transparency metrics, which account for 50 percent of a charity’s overall rating, reveal which charities operate in accordance with industry best practices and whether they are open with their donors and stakeholders. 

“Family Promise’s exceptional 4-star rating sets it apart from its peers and demonstrates its trustworthiness to the public,” according to Michael Thatcher, President & CEO of Charity Navigator. “Only a quarter of charities rated by Charity Navigator receive the distinction of our 4-star rating. This adds Family Promise to a preeminent group of charities working to overcome our world’s most pressing challenges. Based on its 4-star rating, people can trust that their donations are going to a financially responsible and ethical charity when they decide to support Family Promise.”   "
