Family Promise of Clark County is a nonprofit organization committed to help children and their families affected by homelessness in the Clark County, WA area. Over 3,000 children are without a fixed address in all of Clark County. 

Family Promise welcomes families with children experiencing homelessness, puts them into immediate temporary shelter, gets the children to school, and assists parents with permanent long term solutions.  It is an established and successful program, but we need help keeping the program running here in Clark County and there are many ways to make a difference.
