About Family Promise

Family Promise Rochester was launched in 1999 as Interfaith Hospitality Network of Greater Rochester after a group of caring individuals saw the need to provide shelter, meals and comprehensive assistance to homeless families in the Rochester area. The nonprofit opened its doors to guests in March of 2001 and relocated to its current location in January of 2003. Family Promise Rochester is a 501(c)3 non-profit, is managed by an executive director, and governed by a local board of directors.

Transforming the lives of homeless families.
