One Step Ahead
How We Help
Our Housing Navigator helps each family develop an individualized plan to attain safe, affordable housing and develop the confidence and skills they need to achieve long-term independence.
FBFP also assists hundreds of other individuals each year through referrals and partnerships with other local social service agencies and resources. Together, we are providing cost effective solutions to complex problems.
Fort Bend Family Promise
Mission, Vision & Desired Outcomes
The problem is so well-hidden that people often are shocked to learn about the growing number of homeless families in Fort Bend County. Based on a University of Texas study, there are between 6,000 and 9,000 homeless in Fort Bend in any given year, and nearly half are children seeking shelter with their families.
Housing, healthcare and other costs are soaring, and many low income families are just a paycheck away from losing their homes. Common causes of episodic homelessness are job loss, illness, injury, foreclosure, divorce and natural disaster.
Make it Personal. Volunteer.
Fort Bend Family Promise is a volunteer-driven organization. Volunteers are the heart of all the services provided. Every day, Family Promise connects people who want to help with opportunities to make a difference. You don’t need to donate thousands of dollars or hundreds of hours of service to make a difference. In fact, you can make a meaningful change for your neighbors in need with one hour of volunteer work or a single donation of clothing, food, or furniture. Won’t you join us?
Be an Advocate
Fighting homelessness starts with understanding its root causes.
Although there is a small paid staff at Fort Bend Family Promise, volunteers are an essential part of the program. The possibilities are endless.
Each dollar donated to Family Promise is matched by more than $3 of in-kind goods and services, so you can feel confident your contribution will make a big impact.
We have lots of experience
