Family Promise of Western New York
Building Communities, Strengthening Lives
Volunteers are the heart of Family Promise of WNY and are essential to our success. Over 500 volunteers are currently involved with Family Promise of WNY, working on behalf of the host and support congregations providing services such as such as cooking and serving meals, playing with children, helping with homework, and just being there for families showing them compassion, respect, and sharing a sence of community.
Support services are provided by a
professional Case Manager to help families link to needed services
such as finding housing, jobs and benefits.
Once a family leaves Family Promise of WNY, they are never alone.
Family Promise of WNY stays in contact with
families for as long as they need support.
Our network van transports our guest
families to our Day Center where they can receive mail,
catch the school bus, and get ready to head
to work. The Day Center provides guests with a home-like
environment where they have access to
laundry facilities, shower, kitchen, phone, and internet to
seek out employment, housing, day care, and
other benefits to get started on the path toward self-sufficiency.
