The overarching goal off FPNCPBC is to help local homeless children by providing their families with the tools necessary to regain and sustain self-sufficiency. This goal is accomplished through the administration of our comprehensive 90-day core program followed by our 3-year homeless relapse prevention and family strengthening follow-up support program: L.I.F.E.

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

• Serve 12 homeless families per year in our 90 day Core Program
• Provide temporary shelter and meals for 12 families per year through our collaboration with local interfaith communities
• Provide comprehensive goal planning and case management for our families to support graduation from our program to housing with earnings to support move-in expenses and more.
• Provide services that support success for our families including financial education, mentoring, tutoring, life skills classes, employment services, and transportation.
• Serve 40 families with Shelter Diversion services placing them into housing and keeping them out of the shelter system.
• Provide 3-years of follow-up case management to prevent a relapse to homelessness through our L.I.F.E. (Learning Inspires Family Excellence) program.
• Implement effective outreach, marketing, and fundraising and grant writing activities to sustain and grow our ability to serve homeless children.

According to the National Alliance to End Family Homelessness, homeless children have higher levels of behavioral, emotional, and physical health problems, experience family separation and school mobility, repeat grades, join gangs, are expelled or drop out of school, and have lower academic performance than non-homeless peers. Fortunately, according to the Alliance, children are also highly resilient and differences with their peers diminish in the coming years when proper supports are in place.

Phase-one core program activities such as Comprehensive Case Management delivered by a professional and compassionate staff, Life Skills and Financial Skills training, Transportation support, Youth and Adult mentoring, youth summer camp, Educational supports, Employment Services, Housing Finding, Connections to health, mental health and other wellness partners. And in phase-two for the post-graduation L.I.F.E. (Learning Inspires Family Excellence) program. Introduced in 2014, L.I.F.E. is a family strengthening, homelessness relapse prevention mentoring and support program. The purpose of L.I.F.E. is to provide on-going support to enhance skills necessary for our families to maintain their independence. Graduates develop a goal plan and are assisted by our family care counselors who assess progress and provide support that has led to an overall 5-year success rate of 90%; measured as stability in housing at 1-year.

With the staggering costs of rents in PBC and wage growth stagnant it’s now more critical than ever that FPNCPBC strengthen our ability to prevent a return to homelessness for our families.

Family Promise North Central Palm Beach County (FPNCPBC) is a 501c3 non-profit community based organization established in Palm Beach County (PBC) in 2008 with services beginning in 2011. FPNCPBC is one of 200 Family Promise affiliates nationwide addressing family homelessness. Since establishing services in 2011 FPNCPBC has provided navigation and referral services for approximately 3000 callers per year, and provided direct services to over 200 local homeless families.

Family Promise was founded on a simple act of kindness when founder, Karen Olson, handed a sandwich to a woman who was homeless in New York City, and then spent time to listen to her story. What she heard made her understand that homelessness brought profound feelings of diminished self-worth and disconnection from society. When Karen dug further in to the crisis of homelessness she discovered that families in her own community were affected. Moved to make a change, Karen sought out volunteers, community resources, faith communities and more to begin what later became Family Promise; a national movement that believes we can address family homelessness right in our own communities.
