What is Family Promise of HEB?

Family Promise of HEB is a faith-based, non-profit ministry that supports families who are experiencing homelessness as they search for jobs, undergo job training, and obtain permanent housing. The ministry is affiliated with the nation-wide Family Promise which began in New York City in 1986.  80% of the families who complete the program have secured permanent housing. Family Promise is a ministry that focuses on the children of HEB and their families.  

As of January, there have been over 450 students in the HEB school district who have been identified as being in a homeless situation.
