A number of Wisconsin UCC churches are participating in the Family Promise program in their area. The Family Promise mission is to help homeless and low-income families achieve sustainable independence through a community-based response. Family Promise operates on a local level by developing and supporting affiliates that address family homelessness right in their own community. Learn more at familypromise.org.
