Programs and results

What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

Since 1996, Family Promise Salt Lake has worked to shelter homeless families in the greater Salt Lake City Metro area. Family Homelessness is a growing issue across the nation. Working in conjunction with other Homeless Resource Centers, Family Promise's unique and one-of-a-kind program offers intensive case management and volunteer community support.

Our programs

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

What are the organization's current programs, how do they measure success, and who do the programs serve?

Emergency Shelter Program

The Emergency Shelter Program is an interfaith hospitality network of churches/shelters in the Salt Lake Valley that open their doors and house our families for a week at a time throughout the year. Families in the program work with the Family Promise Salt Lake Case Manager to find sustainable housing, jobs, and proper schools for all children. Families have 90 days to complete the program.

Population(s) Served
Homeless people
Economically disadvantaged people

Families work with Case Management for up to two years in order to strengthen the skills they need to succeed. The Case Manager helps connect families to community resources, such as: child care, employment, education, health care, legal services and other necessities for sustainable living.

Population(s) Served
Families
Homeless people

Family Promise has 5 transitional apartments available to families who have graduated from the Emergency Shelter Program. Families sign a Transitional Housing Program application. Upon admission into the program, families continue to receive Case Management. The purpose of transitional housing is to provide extra support to families with challenging barriers that require additional time and resources to resolve. While in the Transitional Housing Program, families take family budgeting class and good tenancy classes in anticipation of moving to independent sustainable housing.

Population(s) Served

Upon leaving Family Promise Salt Lake's Emergency Shelter Program or Transitional Housing Program, families are encouraged to continue working with Family Promise Salt Lake's case managers to help ensure a lasting and permanent place to call home.

Population(s) Served

Family Promise Salt Lake is able to keep individuals and families sheltered utilizing area hotels and motels. This is accomplished in the winter months. Participants in the program are tracked for future services.

Population(s) Served

Family Promise Salt Lake staff work with area property owners/managers incentivizing them thus allowing Family Promise Salt Lake guests a better chance to find affordable and sustainable housing.

Charting impact

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

Our goal is to help families experiencing homelessness achieve lasting self-sufficiency. Ultimately, we would like to see an end to family homelessness.

In 2023, Family Promise Salt Lake's staff and board strategy was to expand capacity in the FPSL Emergency Shelter Program. This strategic plan was accomplished and FPSL's capacity increased by 100%.

Additionally, FPSL strategic planning allowed for an 85% success rate in placing families into sustainable housing of their own.

And finally, FPSL works hard to ensure that families who graduated from shelter and found housing, remain housed. FPSL staff reach out to former guests on a monthly basis offering financial and community based resources to keep families housed.

Balance sheet

Fiscal Year: Jul 01 - Jun 30

SOURCE: IRS Form 990 info

The balance sheet gives a snapshot of the financial health of an organization at a particular point in time. An organization's total assets should generally exceed its total liabilities, or it cannot survive long, but the types of assets and liabilities must also be considered. For instance, an organization's current assets (cash, receivables, securities, etc.) should be sufficient to cover its current liabilities (payables, deferred revenue, current year loan, and note payments). Otherwise, the organization may face solvency problems. On the other hand, an organization whose cash and equivalents greatly exceed its current liabilities might not be putting its money to best use.
