About Family Promise of Bergen County

Family Promise of Bergen County's vision is a community where every working family has a stable home and the means to create a better life. Our mission is to empower working families with children who are facing homelessness to become permanently self-sufficient by providing temporary housing, homeless prevention, and wrap-around support services, which include personalized case management, financial education, job training, empowerment workshops, transportation, childcare, and more. We also address hunger through the nightly Walk-In Dinner Program, which since 1991, has served more than 1.4 million meals to our neighbors in need.
