Charting impact

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

FPGNB helps families with children to overcome homelessness and regain sustainable independence.

We aid families out of homelessness by providing in-depth case management, hospitable shelter, and reliable transportation.

During the day, our families are able to access the Day Center as needed, which serves as both the agency's headquarters and the guests' functional living space. This is where case management takes place.

Case management is provided by our LMSW (Licensed Master Social Worker), who also has a background as an AFC® (Accredited Financial Counselor). In order to successfully regain independence, key goals are mapped out for families to accomplish during their time in the shelter program. These include securing employment, childcare, and affordable housing.

Shelter for our families is coordinated with over 20 local congregations, who provide meals and company to our guests. Each family has their own private space, and overnight volunteers make sure our guests are well-accommodated throughout their stay. Our congregational partners are essential to the success of our mission.

Transportation is made possible by our part-time and volunteers drivers, who work in tandem to get our families wherever they have to go. Whether it's daycare, work, or commuting between the Day Center and our congregations - our team of dedicated drivers has our guests covered!

Our work is 100% donor-funded. Thanks to our donors, we are able to provide these services and more.

Since opening our doors in 2013, Family Promise of Greater New Braunfels has provided over 18,000 nights of shelter. 71 families have received services (224 individuals), 46 of these families have graduated (138 individuals), and 17 families have received donated vehicles since we launched our Drive It Home program. Presently, we have a graduation rate of approximately 72%.

Coming up next, FPGNB has plans to assist with case management for a transitional housing project. This housing project, which is currently underway, is the work of the Comal County Homeless Coalition, which FPGNB is proud to be a part of. Through this coalition, we are also able to assist with the seasonal Cold Weather Shelter for people experiencing homelessness locally.
