Program Expectations

Family Promise of Greater DenverBased on the model of hospitality, Family Promise has developed guidelines that every homeless family must follow. In addition to following the guidelines, guests must also:

  • Make at least seven to ten job contacts per week.
  • Pursue a minimum of five housing contacts every week.
  • Work to find affordable, low-cost childcare or after-school care.
  • Work to obtain any other needed services to move forward on their self-sufficiency plan.
  • Ensure kids are enrolled and attend school daily.
  • Attend weekly Life Skills and Parenting classes.
  • Remain drug and alcohol free while in the program.
  • Stay in contact with Family Promise staff on a daily basis.

Although shelter is provided in church facilities, there is no religious component, nor do volunteers or staff impose religious views on guests.
