The Promise Builders is for supporters who commit to a providing a recurring gift. This gift will ensure that families are able to avoid homelessness through prevention services or to provide temporary housing to those who are experiencing homelessness.
The mission of Family Promise of Waukesha County, Inc. is to help low-income families and families experiencing homelessness achieve sustainable independence through a community-based response
How we affect change
The services we offer to achieve this mission are:
Why is there a need?
Waukesha County is facing a housing crisis. A lack of affordable housing, along with a significant increase in rent, has left many families without the resources to afford housing. Over the past year, we have seen a concerning increase of requests for shelter and financial support to prevent homelessness. Addressing this issue is important because losing one's home is more than housing. It is about family stability, education, nutrition, and mental health. Homelessness affects the entire person and family.
Our goal is to make sure families avoid the destruction that accompanies homelessness.
