Who We Are

Our mission is to help homeless and low-income families within our community achieve sustainable independence.

When Family Promise began, it was a local response to a problem in Union County, New Jersey. Thirty years later, we are a national movement involving more than 200,000 volunteers which served more than 177,000 people in 2020.

But the core of what we do is still local—partnerships within Cheyenne changing lives. Family Promise of Cheyenne makes that possible by developing and supporting Affiliates that address family homelessness right in their own community.

Over the past three decades, Family Promise has continued to expand our scope and our reach. Today, we comprise more than 200 Affiliates across 43 states and are the leading national nonprofit addressing the issue of family homelessness.
