Who We Are

Our goal is to help homeless and low-income families achieve sustainable independence.

Family Promise of Greater Beloit adopted their model for servicing families facing homelessness in 2000. We believe families should stay together—not be separated—during the most difficult times in their lives. Our spacious facility can accommodate up to nine families at a time, 365 days a year. Volunteers from the community provide meals and other support for our guest families, as our trauma-trained staff workwork with them to achieve stability and self-sufficiency. Many of our former guests have returned to work with families themselves after getting on their feet. We're proud to have had such a profound, positive impact on  hundreds of families in Southern Wisconsin!

In 2000, the Greater Beloit Social Justice and Community Action Committee took on an initiative to address the homeless problem in our community.  They realized they couldn't do it by themselves.

 

Meetings were organized, invitations were sent out, speakers were arranged. Brainstorming was common. Out of each meeting came action items.  A strong core of participants continued to be involved.  Tom Kelly discovered an organization called the Interfaith Hospitality Network.  In 2001, Hands of Faith was incorporated and affiliated with the IHN, adopting their model for servicing homeless families.  In July 2017, we became Family Promise of Greater Beloit, one of over 200 Family Promise affiliates across the USA. 

Copies of Family Promise of Greater Beloit's IRS 990's and our annual financial statements for the last three years are available by calling our office at 608-363-0683.
