Needs List – In Kind Donations

Because we are unique in our mission to support and end family homelessness, our needs list may seem a bit long and detailed. Still, our experience has shown us what best benefits our families and their situations over the years. Hopefully, you will discover an item or two that is ideal for you to contribute.

Like many nonprofit organizations, we’re always in need of volunteers and supplies. Money is also gratefully accepted, and checks can be made to Family Promise of Greater Chattanooga, P.O. Box 1146, Chattanooga, TN 37401.
