Family Promise Montco PA (formerly Inter-Faith Housing Alliance) has been engaging the community to help Montgomery County families that are experiencing poverty and homelessness since 1982. We partner with local congregations, dedicated volunteers, and generous donors to prevent and resolve homelessness and hunger in our own backyard.
We provide emergency food relief at the Family Promise Food Pantry in Abington and emergency, transitional, and supportive housing programs for families with children at sites in Ambler and Lansdale. Families in housing programs receive intensive case management and supportive services.
Need help? Learn more about how you can access food and housing assistance from Family Promise Montco at our Get Help page.
In partnership with local religious congregations, we provide up to 90 days of emergency shelter to families. Families work with a case manager to create a housing plan and typically move on to permanent housing or our transitional housing program at Hope Gardens.
Hope Gardens, our eight-unit apartment building in downtown Ambler, is home to our transitional housing program, where families reside for up to two years and receive case management and other supports.
Hope Forest and Hope on Fifth are the two sites for our supportive housing program, for families who need light support as they transition to self-sufficiency.
Family Promise doesn’t just provide housing. We give families the tools they need to become self-sufficient.
Families who have graduated from our housing programs can connect with a volunteer case manager, to help them stay stably housed.
Our food pantry, located on the campus of Salem Baptist Church, is open four days a week to provide nutritious food to low-income residents of Montgomery County.
