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

What is the organization aiming to accomplish?

Family Promise of Midland is committed to helping low-income families, facing homelessness, in the Midland, Texas area achieve independence. Family Promise of Midland is the one, and only, program in this area that reaches out to the single-parent, as well as the two-parent family, maintaining the family unit, as they strive to achieve lasting sustainability. Family promise is striving to end family homelessness, one family at a time!

Family Promise of Midland's Interfaith Hospitality Network (IHN) provides shelter, meals, hospitality and support services for families accepted into the program. All basic expenses are paid. Adults in the program are required to be in full-time employment or full-time school or a combination of the two. Families are required to save 80% of their income, which may be used to pay down debt. Families Forward Transitional Housing provides graduates of the IHN program a home that is owned and maintained by Family Promise of Midland for a low, monthly program fee. Again, all adults are required to work and/or go to school and child daycare is provided. These families are required to save 20% of their income. Case management and counseling services are provided to the families in both programs.

Family Promise of Midland's Interfaith Hospitality Network (IHN) partners with thirteen or more local congregations that rotate on a weekly basis to provide shelter, meals, hospitality and support services for up to four families and/or 14 people at a time. United Way of Midland grants yearly funding to pay for child daycare. United Way of Midland also funded the grant to purchase three duplexes for the initial phase of Family Promise of Midland's Families Forward Transitional Housing. Counseling services are provided to the families through various community service collaborations. The Family Promise of Midland Board of Directors is extremely involved in the success, supporting various donation drives and fundraisers including an annual clay shoot and pre-Christmas event, "No Room at the Inn".

Each family in the program, in collaboration with the Family Promise Case Manager, sets monthly goals involving all aspects of financial literacy, including budgeting and home management, improvement of personal and interpersonal skills, plus counseling in specific areas needed to promote individual family success. Also, specific rules are in place for each program that all families must follow.

Progress is measured on a family-by-family basis. The Family Promise Case Manager meets with each family at least once a month to review their progress. The three-strikes-you're-out rule is utilized so that program rules are maintained. Success is measured by the accomplishment of each family's goals, as well as compliance to the Family Promise of Midland rules. IHN families that have achieved their goals are graduated out of the program. These families may choose to apply to enter the Families Forward Transitional Housing program. Families in the Families Forward Transitional Housing have a maximum two-year stay, however many families choose to graduate before that time has expired. Since its inception in January 2011, as of April 2015, Family Promise of Midland has served 59 homeless families. That includes a total of 199 people – 74 adults and 125 children.
