We are passionate about building a community in which every family has a home, a livelihood, and a chance to build a better future together.
Family Promise of Knoxville (FPK) launched in July of 2005 in response to the plight of family homelessness in our community. In our near fourteen years of service, we have sheltered over 200 families with a 79% success rate of placing families in safe, secure and sustainable housing. FPK is an affiliate of Family Promise, Inc. and is one of over 200 affiliates operating in 43 states. The proven Family Promise model of shelter works in partnership with the interfaith community. Because our mission to help low-income and homeless families achieve sustainable independence dovetails with the missions of so many houses of worship, the partnership is both strong and effective.
