Family Promise Metrowest
Our Mission: To transform the lives of families with children who are homeless by mobilizing a diverse community to provide shelter, education and comprehensive support.
Family Promise Metrowest offers a continuum of programs to our families: 1) Shelter is provided at our Day Center in Natick, where professional family coaches assist families in reaching goals addressing health, parenting, transportation, finances and future housing. Volunteers provide meals and support our shelter families several times/week. These volunteer roles are most often filled by our network of multi-faith congregations; however, when congregations can’t fill the roles, we look to the wider community for help. 2) Our SAIL Program offers family coaching and subsidies to families after leaving shelter and moving into the community. 3) Our LIFE Program is a homelessness prevention program keeping families who are facing homelessness in their homes and providing family coaching to ensure long-term stability. 4) Our Steps to Success Program is available to families in any of our programs and aims to maximize their earning potential by emphasizing education and career exploration.
