Welcome to
Family Promise of WNY

Helping families experiencing homelessness stay together

About Us

We Are Critical

We are one of two emergency homeless shelters in Erie County that take complete families.  Traditional shelters separate men and teenage boys from women and children. We keep families together and the majority of our guests are children.

We Are Volunteer Driven

We mobilize a network of 500 volunteers to help us shelter, feed and support our guests.  With only 2 full-time employees, FPWNY's dedicated volunteers are imperative to our success and help families achieve permanent housing at a fraction of the cost of traditional shelters.

We Are Interfaith

Our program is based on the value of hospitality that is found in every religious tradition and provides the framework which allows volunteers to put their faith into action in order to directly minister to some of the most vulnerable members of our community.
