About Us

Family Promise of the Verdugos (FPV) is a non-profit homeless service agency. Since 2010, FPV has operated a successful 90-Day shelter in partnership with local congregations. In 2017, FPV began a partnership with the City of Burbank to implement two variations of Rapid Rehousing. And, in 2019, in partnership with the Burbank Housing Corporation and City of Burbank we opened our first Transitional Housing program called Jerry's Promise. Through these services and more we provide services to nearly 50 households per day.
