About Family Promise

In 2004, Family Promise of Acadiana was established as the first Family Promise network in Louisiana. It is the only program in the area that offers shelter to entire families, including teen boys and single dads. Family unit must include children in order to be eligible for entry into our program. There are several host and support churches in the Family Promise of Acadiana network.

Network Congregations

There are two types of congregations in our network that provide assistance to families: Host Congregations provide guests with weekly living facilities as well as basic necessities for the guests. Volunteers from host congregations provide guests with meals, support, and welcoming care. Support congregations assist host congregations in providing volunteers and help needed to run the facilities.
