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.

Get Involved

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
