Prevention & Diversion

Family Promise provides Prevention and Diversion assistance for families facing the crisis of homelessness.  

With more than 40% of Americans a $400 expense away from financial distress, the threat of crisis looms closely for too many families. Preventing families from spiraling into homelessness is an essential part of the Family Promise mission.

 PREVENTION & DIVERSION

The best way to prevent homelessness is to stop it before it happens. Family Promise attempts to prevent families from becoming homeless or entering the shelter by providing conflict mediation with landlords, or housemates, and financial assistance. Nearly 55% of children in Florida are living in households that are one paycheck away from facing homelessness. Family Promise’s Prevention and Diversion programs act as a resource for when that one paycheck is missed.
