Working with StoryCorps, we will train older adults to interview and record formerly homeless youth talking about what home means to them. Sharing these narratives while working with caring adults provides youth with a therapeutic outlet to cope with the trauma of homelessness, builds resiliency and self-esteem, and teaches the oral history tradition. Older adults can share their own stories and may learn a new skill. We will share recordings to raise awareness of homelessness and build empathy.


We empower families into sustainable independence.


We keep families together. We offer hope & home.


We are Family Promise.
