Family Promise of the Verdugos is a non-profit organization providing assistance to homeless children and their family. Working in partnership with local faith-based congregations and other community resources; Family Promise provides food, shelter, counseling support and job readiness training resulting in self-reliance and a more stable future for situationally-homeless families.

Who Do We Help

We assist situationally-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

Up to four families can be served at once. The actual number of individuals varies depending on the make up of each family but will never exceed 14.

Length of Stay in FPV

While FPV emphasizes being a 60-day Back to Work program, families may remain in the program for up to 90 days. The average length of stay has been between 41-72 days and it is anticipated this quick turn around time can be maintained.

Success Rate

Family Promise of the Verdugos, since 2010 has graduated over 100 families and none have returned to homelessness.
