Family Promise of the Verdugos
Ending Homelessness, One Family at a Time
Mission Statement: 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
Our services focus on homeless families with children from the cities of Glendale, Burbank and surrounding communities.
How Many Families May We Serve
We provide support to an average of 50 households per month. This figure consists of households in all programs we operate.
Length of Stay in FPV
While FPV emphasizes being a 90-day program the average length of stay has been 54 days and it is anticipated this quick turn around time can be maintained.
In 2019, Family Promise assisted 141 homeless families in attaining housing. This is a 97% success rate.
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.
