Family Promise of the Verdugos
Ending Homelessness, One Family at a Time
To assist families experiencing homelessness in gaining independence by transitioning into permanent housing and employment, with the support of our community.
Who Do We Help
We assist homeless families with children return to sustainable independence…whether this means helping them find employment or housing or both.
How Many Families May We Serve
In the 90-Day Shelter we serve up to four families at once. The actual number of individuals varies depending on the make up of each family but will never exceed 14. However, through the combined efforts of all programming we serve nearly 50 households per day.
Length of Stay in FPV
While FPV emphasizes being a 90-day Back to Work programThe average length of stay has been between 54 days and it is anticipated this quick turn around time can be maintained.
Family Promise of the Verdugos, since 2010 has graduated over 300 families. In 2018, 97% of families attained housing.
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 all these services and more we provide services to nearly 50 households per day.
