ABOUT FPE: Family Promise of Essex County’s (FPE) mission is to help homeless and at-risk families achieve self-sufficiency by providing shelter, social services, and housing assistance through a community-based approach. FPE envisions a community in which every family has a home, a livelihood, and the chance to build a better future.

FPE began in 1988 as a non-sectarian response to the crisis of family homelessness in Essex County. FPE is an affiliate of Family Promise, which currently has over 200 affiliates nationwide. In 2021, over 350 people received FPE services, and approximately 50% of this number were children. FPE recognizes that family homelessness and poverty are complex issues that require comprehensive, innovative solutions. Solving homelessness is not just about housing. Our holistic approach to the crisis of family homelessness includes these areas of focus: prevention and diversion, emergency shelter and housing and stabilization.

Thank you to our sponsors!
