amily Promise of Berks County is a 501(c)(3)
nonprofit and an affiliate of Family Promise National.
It serves families, youth and individuals who are without housing, also providing rent and utility assistance
when funding is available.
In addition, Family Promise has started U-Turn, a
program geared specifically to address and help
homeless teens and young adults, which is an issue
of growing concern in Berks County and other areas.
Family Promise is funded by grants; public funding;
fundraising events and donations from individuals,
businesses, foundations and local congregations.
The organization has five paid staff members, along
with two paid van drivers. Much of the work it does
depends on volunteers from area congregations, which
serve as hosts for families in the program.
