Families in need in Chattanooga are not without a helping hand up when they need it most. The Family Promise model is unique among agencies providing shelter for families in need because it does not subscribe to institutionalized shelters as a solution. Family Promise of Greater Chattanooga strives to keep families together.


We believe in the family unit's fundamental power and strength and serve all family configurations, including two segments that have been under-served over the years: two-parent families with children and adolescents, and single fathers with children and adolescents. We also serve single mothers with children and adolescents, pregnant women, and custodial parents with children and adolescents.


We are proud to say we provide a safe, welcoming environment with caring, professional staff to help families quickly transition to self-sustainability.


We now offer four programs to help prevent, reduce, and end homelessness and serve more homeless and near homeless families in need. These programs help families become stable, employed, housed, and linked to supportive and follow-up services to ensure a successful return to self-sufficiency.
