Who We Are

Family Promise of Greater Orlando opened its doors in the year 2000 to provide emergency shelter, meals and support services to Central Florida families experiencing homelessness. We give parents the hope and encouragement they need to create a better future for their children and end the cycle of homelessness. We are a separately incorporated affiliate of the national organization called Family Promise, helping homeless and low-income families achieve sustainable independence through a community response.

We are a proud affiliate of Family Promise National. For more information, click here!
