Lake Houston UMC is proud to be a part of the Family Promise program. The core program is a way for communities to address the challenge of family homelessness by using existing resources. Not only does this make the program cost efficient, it makes it effective. Family Promise is not just about getting families into housing, but addressing all the underlying issues and using the community to keep them in housing.
How it Works
Our church provides space in our buildings to serve as temporary homes. We provide a place for where families can take showers, receive case management and look for housing and jobs. LHUMC volunteers give their time in making meals and sharing hospitality with our guests. They share food, spend the night, play with children and lend their passion and expertise to help families get back on their feet. They prove that motivated people can solve family homelessness. More information can be found at the Family Promise website.
