A centralized campus of housing, programs, and services to serve children and their families experiencing homelessness or at risk of becoming homeless
In December 2019, after a successful campaign, Family Promise of Hall County purchased and moved to The Homestead, a 19,000 square foot structure off McEver Road designed to house all FPHC services under one roof. This centralized campus gives FPHC the ability to serve additional families with one or more parents who work evening or nighttime hours. It also allows for more efficient use of staff and operational resources and greater stability for families and their children as they progress through the FPHC program(s) to sustainable independence.
To make The Homestead a reality, Family Promise of Hall County's Board of Directors launched a capital campaign, The Homestead: Empowerment Lives Here, in January 2019. With a working goal of $1.3 million, the campaign entered its public phase in August 2019.
There are children in Hall County sleeping in their parent's car tonight because they have nowhere else to go. That's why we have created the Homestead: a 10-acre campus that integrates all of the services, programs, and shelter options that a family needs.
