Rather than spending their last dollar on a cheap hotel, homeless parents and their children can be sheltered in a participating church. Families can stay safely together in the shelter program and receive meals, counseling, love and support during a critical time in their life. Family Promise of Carbon County is a nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization that began serving the homeless and poverty stricken in 2011. Since then our volunteers have changed the lives of so many people in Carbon County.

Help us to help others by volunteering or making a donation today.
