Family Promise joins forces with Welcome House to provide shelter and more to region’s homeless

Welcome House of Northern Kentucky, a homeless non-profit agency, has joined in partnership with Family Promise.

Family Promise is a group of individuals, community leaders, faith communities, corporate partners and civic organizations working together to change the lives of homeless and low-income families in Northern Kentucky by creating sustainable independence.

Family Promise utilizes local churches and their congregations to provide shelter specifically for families struggling with homelessness.

Welcome House will continue to partner with the congregations involved for a seamless transition to provide for the homeless population with additional resources for sustainable independence.

The Board of Directors from both organizations felt a partnership was a natural fit and a progressive opportunity for both Family Promise and Welcome House.

“Family Promise is convinced that this partnership will allow the families we serve to benefit from the expanded resources and services offered by Welcome House while continuing to receive the high level of care and dedication provided by Family Promise. Together, we will provide families greater opportunities for success and sustainable independence,” says Julie Neuroth, Board Chair of Family Promise of Northern Kentucky.

The partnership of Family Promise of Northern Kentucky fits into Welcome House’s mission to provide a continuum of services in an effort to take our most vulnerable neighbors from housing uncertainty to housing stability.

With Family Promise of Northern Kentucky and Welcome House joining forces, Welcome House will be able to enhance its mission and begin sheltering entire families, which is a service that is desperately needed in this community.

“This move provides both organizations a chance to enhance services, improve communication between agencies that often see a similar list of clients, and achieve the kind of operating scale that tends to promote long-term nonprofit sustainability. Family Promise is a valuable asset to our community and we are honored to continue its mission,” says Danielle Amrine, CEO, Welcome of Northern Kentucky, Inc.
