Family Promise of Sussex County is a 501(c)3 tax exempt organization that has been providing services to local homeless families in the county since its incorporation in 1997. The mission of Family Promise of Sussex County is to serve homeless families by uniting local congregations and community resources to provide shelter and meals, while working with families to overcome barriers to self-sufficiency and advocate for local, affordable housing solutions. Our agency is an affiliate of a very successful national program that has effectively addressed the crisis of family homelessness in communities across the country. During 2015, over 57,627 individuals were provided services through the 200 Family Promise affiliate agencies. Family Promise of Sussex County receives funding from a diverse array of sources including County, State, Federal and foundation grants. The agency also receives a large amount of direct funding through local corporate, congregational and individual donors.
Family Promise of Sussex County provides wrap-around, comprehensive services to at-risk and homeless families and individuals in Sussex County. Our programs include Emergency Shelter, Intensive Case Management, Homeless Prevention, A Homeless Men’s Day Program and Rapid Rehousing Programs for our clients. Our Emergency Shelter program is the core of Family Promise, responding to the urgent crisis needs of families experiencing homelessness. In 2016, Family Promise of Sussex County worked with 28 congregations to provide over 2,000 meals to our shelter guests. In addition, local Women’s Groups, Girl Scouts, Youth Groups, churches, schools, and private donors have provided housewares, clothing and personal hygiene items, cleaning supplies and other resources to support the needs of our clientele.
Our Rapid Rehousing program is funded by HUD and it was developed to directly support the needs of our Emergency Shelter program. Looking to stabilize families quickly and reduce the effects of the trauma of homelessness, Rapid Rehousing grant dollars provide a means to quickly move families out of the shelter and into stable, individual housing by providing graduated rental assistance and intensive case management to stabilize families and move them towards self-sufficiency. Participants in the program engage in employment counseling, money management, financial repair, budgeting and are required to participate in a savings program so that families are financially stronger and stable when exiting the program.
The additional programs and services provided through our Day Center in Newton support the complex needs of homeless individuals and families in Sussex County and work to stabilize those in a housing crisis. Intensive Case Management services are open to all Sussex County residents at-risk or experiencing housing instability. Our Homeless Prevention program provides financial assistance to those served with an eviction notice and in imminent danger of becoming homeless. Our Men’s Day Program is one of the very few services dedicated to supporting the homeless male population of our county. On two days of the week, homeless men are provided access to a social worker to provide life skill training, advocacy and referral services. They can also utilize the Day Center facilities for laundry and showers. Access to computers and Career Counseling is provided for education, employment and housing searches.
Family Promise of Sussex County is a member of the Sussex County Human Services Advisory Committee, Tri-County Continuum of Care, Council of Service Agencies, Tri-County CoC Veterans Prioritization Sub-Committee, Homeless Coordination, Sussex County Chamber of Commerce, and attends various other coalition and steering committee meetings throughout Sussex County. Family Promise works closely with the Division of Social Services and all service agencies in the creation, implementation and fulfillment of case plans for the individuals and families we serve.
