The mission of Family Promise of Hawai’i is to mobilize existing community resources to aid families with children experiencing homelessness and help them transition to sustainable independence.
Family Promise of Hawai’i is an innovative program to help families with children escape homelessness by providing safe spaces. FPH provides a safe space during the day at our two Family Centers, and partners with local congregations, churches, synagogues, temples, mosques and community groups to provide safe places to sleep at night. Founded in Hawai’i in 2006, we opened up our first Family Center in Kailua, and then in 2007, we expanded to our second Family Center in Honolulu. Due to our unique model, we operate at 1/3 the cost of traditional homeless shelter programs because we seek the support of existing community resources.
