Mission Statement

Our mission is to help families who are in need and demonstrate the ability to benefit from assistance provided by Family Promise. The mission is carried out by a network of congregations and other community resources working together to meet the immediate, basic needs of displaced families and assist them to build patterns that will bring long-term stability.

Vision Statement

We envision an ever growing, broad-based and coordinated response from private-citizens in Lehigh County who are motivated and empowered to provide care for entire families in a holistic and home-like environment, enabling those families to become self-sufficient. This vision includes guiding and nurturing a network of area congregations as the steadfast and inspired source of assistance to the homeless families in our surrounding area.
