What We Do


Family Promise of Knoxville is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization that unites with the interfaith community to provide non-emergency housing to families with children who have lost their homes. Family Promise of Knoxville is one of over 180 affiliates of Family Promise, Inc., which will celebrate its 30th anniversary in 2018.

Founded on the knowledge that the people of Knox County are compassionate and have true volunteer spirit, Family Promise of Knoxville first opened its doors in 2005. The mission of Family Promise is “To help homeless and low income families achieve sustainable independence” and our vision is a community in which every family has a home, a livelihood and a chance to build a better future together.
