Family Promise of Greater Savannah was founded to alleviate homelessness among families with children by providing emergency shelter, meals, and inclusive support. To work towards this effort, Family Promise utilizes a network of local Host Congregations of all faiths where our guests spend each evening having dinner and networking with motivated volunteers who are eager to help them achieve their goals.
Family Promise is the only full-service emergency shelter program within the City of Savannah that provides day-to-day shelter. The Day Center is the core for the organization's network. There, guests can shower, attend to laundry needs, care for their children, and meet regularly with our Case Manager to map their progress and navigate through the systemic barriers that lead to their homelessness. Family Promise is one of the few emergency shelters in the area that allows all members of the family to reside together, while working on their sufficiency plan. Guests are linked to available resources within the Chatham County-Savannah Continuum of Care for the Homeless designed to help low-income families achieve lasting independence.
