Family Promise Helps Homeless working families in many ways

We participate in the Network Program, helping to host homeless families for 3 weeks each year,.
But Family Promise has other programs to help the homeless, and when we Hike for Hope, we are hiking to support all of these programs

The Network Program provides emergency shelter in churches and synagogues for homeless working families with children
The New Leaf Program provides several temporary apartments for families moving from the Network Program 
Families in both these programs work with their Family Promise Case Manager to improve their work skills and to learn life lessons on savings, money management,and child care
The Walk-In Dinner Program through which Family Promise volunteer groups feed up to 150 people a day at the Bergen County Housing, Health and Human Services Center in Hackensack

Camp Lots o' Fun, which provides children ages 5 through 12 from the Network and New Leaf Programs with a two-week summer day camp, to allow them to just be children
