Family Promise of the Lehigh Valley is a local chapter of the national Family Promise organization. The local chapter has been operating as a non-profit since July 2016 and our partnership began in December 2018.
The goal of the organization is to provide housing for homeless families and resources to help them get back on their feet. Different local churches and other organizations come together to provide program families with a week of housing and food at a time. NC4 Macungie serves as the host site during NC4’s week to serve each quarter.
