Family Promise of Greater Concord

We are Family Promise of Greater Concord (FPGC), one of two hundred affiliates under Family Promise National, and one of two homeless family shelters in Concord, NH.

Our Mission:

To help homeless and low-income families achieve sustainable independence through a community-based response.

While there are many wonderful nonprofits that serve the homeless population in general, homeless families tend to be more complex, with obstacles such as childcare, employment, academic issues, mental health, relationship stressors, custody battles, and parenting struggles that homeless individuals do not face. FPGC works with 13 interfaith sites within our Concord community to house and feed three families at a time, providing them with case management and connection to services to help them get back on their feet and into stable housing. We receive referrals from City Welfare, school systems, our interfaith sites, Community Action Program, Friends Program, and many other organizations throughout the community and have a running waiting list that we reference when one of our families graduates, but once you are part of our familiy you are always a part of it. After graduation we continue to offer support through case management to help our families navigate the challenges of life so that history does not repeat itself. 

We, at FPGC, believe in our mission because we know that every child is deserving of a place to call home!
