Denver Family Promise: Ending Homelessness One Family at a Time

February 7, 7:00 pm



In 1997, a small group of compassionate individuals saw the unmet needs of families experiencing homelessness within the Denver area. This group met with Karen Olson, the founder of Family Promise National, an organization started in 1988 in Summit, NJ to serve children and their families in need of housing. Soon this group recruited 10 faith communities to shelter families in the Greater Denver area for a week at a time in their facilities including Temple Emanuel.​ 

In 2014, Family Promise of Greater Denver (FPGD) began to notice families were returning to shelter, more and more people were moving from out of state without a safe place to call home, and families were being displaced from housing. FPGD began to expand programs in order to accommodate these increased needs. Through a spectrum of supportive services, we walk alongside families from surviving to thriving.
