Where would you turn if you were faced with eviction and the threat of homelessness?

This scenario is repeated over and over again by families looking for resources to provide stability to their household during times of crisis. The answer may be as close as a call to the office of Family Promise of Sussex County.

Incorporated in 1997, Family Promise of Sussex County has provided services to assist families and single men and women as they work towards housing stability and self-sufficiency. The mission of the agency is to serve homeless families by:
