Big Bend Homeless Coalition to become Family Promise of the Big Bend

Family Promise of the Big Bend, formerly the Big Bend Homeless Coalition, has been providing shelter and housing services since 1987. Our mission is to end homelessness in the Big Bend through leadership, education, advocacy, and the provision of quality services and affordable housing.

Family Promise of the Big Bend is powered by people like you.  We rely on volunteers to help us with painting and maintenance of our rental units, sorting food, helping us with crafts and other children’s activities and so much more.

Family Promise of the Big Bend envisions our future as one in which every family has a home, a livelihood, and the chance to build a better future. We changed our name from Big Bend Homeless Coalition to Family Promise of the Big Bend to better tell our story.

What We Do

Family Promise of the Big Bend delivers innovative solutions to prevent family homelessness including providing emergency shelter at HOPE – the only family shelter in the Big Bend. We also provide affordable housing either directly at our 3 housing sites or by referring those in need to our partner organizations. We do more.

Why We Do It

For decades we’ve served as the safety net for families and veterans in the Big Bend. We’re living in a time when housing costs are creating the longest wait lists we’ve ever seen for emergency shelter and affordable housing.
