What
We
Do

Family Promise Mat-Su is part of a National organization.  Our vision is to see a nation in which every family has a home, a livelihood, and the chance to build a better future. We do this by helping homeless and low-income families achieve sustainable independence through a community-based response of compassionate care.

Facts about Homelessness in the Mat-Su Valley

Families with children comprise 33% of the homeless population--a larger percentage than previous years.
 
Since opening in 2005, Family Promise Mat-Su has provided over 39.000 shelter bed nights.

50% of our shelter guests are children under the age of 5. 

563 schoolchildren (grades K-12) in the Mat-Su Borough were homeless in the 2016-2017 school year.

Lack of affordable housing is the main cause of homelessness in our Community.

Many of our homeless guest families have been sleeping in their vehicles (with their kids!) prior to entering shelter.
