Welcome to Family Promise of Greater Des Moines

Each night in Polk County, more than 400 adults and children in families are homeless; half are children. The impact of losing a home is traumatic, especially for children. The resulting instability creates insecurity, worry, low self-esteem, and difficulty focusing in school and studying.

At Family Promise of Greater Des Moines we strive to create a safe, stable and nurturing environment for the children as well as to support the efforts of their parents in securing employment and housing.
