What We Do
FPCA is Mobile’s only emergency housing program that provides shelter and services for the entire family at no cost to them.
In partnership with the City of Mobile, FPCA provides rental units for two families in a renovated duplex. Families in our affordable housing program receive the same client-focused case management services that our IHN families receive for up to 18 months. The symbiotic relationship between the city and Family Promise promotes the health of an older downtown neighborhood while meeting one of a family's most basic needs, housing at a cost they can manage.
The core elements of an effective approach to homelessness for families already exists in our community - volunteers, congregations and mainstream resources. The Interfaith Hospitality Network is the bringing together of these core elements. Volunteers prepare and serve meals. Congregations share their space. An experienced case manager assists families with making individualized case plans and accessing community resources.
