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

Congregations in our network live their faith by providing a variety of assistance to families: Volunteers from host congregations provide guests with meals, encouragement, and companionship. Support congregations assist host congregations in providing volunteers, financial support, and help with miscellaneous operational needs of our facility.
