The mission of Family Promise of Greater Johnson City (FPJC) is to help homeless and low income families achieve sustainable independence. We provide a network of faith congregations and community agencies to promote a collaborative response for homeless families with children.

In particular, this response provides an opportunity for homeless families to remain together as a family while addressing the challenges that confront them in obtaining housing. These families receive case management, specific to their needs, and in-depth support as they work to move ahead.

Families must complete an application and submit to a background check. Eligible guests will be accepted into FPJC on a space availability basis without regard to race, religion, ethnicity, or financial status.

FPJC primarily serves families from Washington, Carter, Unicoi, Greene, Johnson and the eastern end of Sullivan Counties in Northeast Tennessee. A network of over 50 partnering faith congregations and their volunteers provide food, overnight shelter and compassionate assistance to homeless families. During the day, families are transported to FPJC’s Day Center where they work on their goals and objectives with case managers and other volunteers. A computer lab is located across the breezeway from the Day Center where families can work on agreed-upon goals, like job and housing searches.

FPJC incorporates two distinct programs, Interfaith Hospitality Network (IHN) and Families Moving Home (FMH).

FPJC is affiliated with Family Promise, a national organization with more than 200 Affiliates in 43 states, along with more locations under development. Nationally, our programs involve more than 160,000 volunteers and 6,000 congregations.
