Family Promise of Hawai’i offers emergency shelter for families experiencing homelessness. Approximately 86% of our families transition into housing within 3-4 months. We partner with local interfaith congregations and community groups to provide overnight accommodations and meals within their facilities. During the day, enrolled families can come to our Family Day Centers to access comprehensive support services such as case management, job training, education, life skills, and housing support. If you are in need of emergency shelter, please contact our office at (808) 548-7478.

A network of interfaith congregations hosts our families four times a year, for a week at a time. Hosts provide the physical space to sleep and meals to the families and children enrolled in our emergency shelter. Support groups provide meals and volunteers to support hosts. Families arrive at the host site around 5:30pm and depart in the morning around 7:00am. If you are a member of a congregation or community group who would like to serve families experiencing homelessness, please contact [email protected]
