Welcome to Family Promise of Lewis Clark Valley

girlFamily Promise of Lewis Clark Valley is a non-profit organization that partners together with local agencies and our faith community to provide positive solutions to families in crisis. Since August 2008, the members of our network have offered shelter and meals to families in crisis. For our guest families, Family Promise of Lewis Clark Valley is a way station of support and companionship on their journey toward self-sufficiency and independance. For our volunteers it is an opportunity to serve and to achieve a better understanding of poverty and homelessness.



is to help homeless and low-income families achieve sustainable independence.
We recognize that poverty is a multifaceted problem that requires a multifaceted response. We respond by integrating educational outreach, smart programming, effective policies, and the hands-on work of thousands of volunteers. We provide food, shelter, and support services for homeless families. We provide advice and advocacy for at-risk families to prevent their becoming homeless. And we educate people about poverty and the means to combat it.

Family Promise of Lewis Clark Valley

Family Promise of Lewis Clark Valley and the YWCA are the only two organizations that have bed space for homeless families in the valley.

In 2012 Family Promise served 14 homeless families and provided safe housing for 26 children. Through the work of our partner churches we provided 2,727 donated meals and 8,189 bed nights. This was made possible by 23 valley churches working together and mobilizing an army of over 350 volunteers.

Family Promise is a wise investment! In addition to helping homeless families we save taxpayer dollars by providing a service at a much lower cost than the federal government. A typical homeless family uses hospitals, health clinics, and prison services four times more that an average family. Hospital stays average $1,853 dollars a night, clinics are $369 per night, prisons are $55 per night, and average homeless shelters are $35 per night and family promise operates for just $17 per night per person. In addition to that 85% of Family Promise guests move out into permanent housing!

Family Promise is a totally local program. The money you donate to Family Promise of Lewis Clark Valley Inc. serves homeless families right here in our valley. So, if you want to make a real difference in the lives of valley homeless families donate today!
