Interfaith Hospitality Network
“A 2nd Rotation”

     Family Promise of Knoxville is committed to ending family homelessness in Knoxville.
     The sad reality is that one in every four homeless persons is a child. In Tennessee 38% of homeless families go without any shelter. Family Promise is working to grow and meet the needs of these children and their parents. Your congregation or group can make a difference in the lives of these families. Join our IHN network.
Be a Host Congregation: Once a Quarter, turn 4 rooms into a home for overnight guest families and overnight host volunteers. Provide dinner each night and cereal and fruit in the morning. Guests are at the host site only between 5:00 pm and 7:00 am.
Be a Support Group: We will partner you with a host congregation to help provide meals, evening host volunteers, and overnight volunteers 4 weeks out of the year.
Be a Financial Partner: Consider adding Family Promise to your congregational budget or annual charitable giving. Give the gift of hope to help families get back on their feet.
We would love to come share more information with your group about getting involved.

 

We welcome new congregation Grace Presbyterian.  Please consider adding your congregation to this list!
