Family Promise of Lawrence

This is another Lawrence community-based progr
am that helps provide a new start for “families” that have gotten into a position of extreme financial need. The mission statement of the national Family Promise organization is:



"Our mission is to transform the lives of homeless children and their families by providing safe shelter, food, counseling, and training in partnership with local communities of faith through hospitality and daily living support in a compassionate setting.  The program is designed to address the needs of families and equip them to move into permanent housing as quickly as possible."


Immanuel is one of fourteen congregations in Lawrence that host the families that are in the program with the addition of several others that provide support. When we host these families, we provide lodging in rooms at our church, plus serve them breakfast and dinner. It is truly a fantastic experience to serve and meet these families. We can always use extra hands to help.


Please see the Family Promise website for more information about this great organization that we are pleased to support.
