Family Promise COVID-19 Response

Family Promise of Grand Rapids has made the decision that our Day Center will remain closed for the remainder of 2020. FPGR continues to work with Kent County, City officials, and partners to keep families and children safely sheltered, provide them with basic needs, and help families move home.

Many of you have reached out, and asked how can you help during this time. Thank you! We are beginning to resume In-Kind donations by appointment. To see what items we are accepting you can visit our Wish List.  Furniture donations are on pause until Habitat ReStore is able to receive donations. Please email Chelsea, at to set up an appointment.

Volunteer opportunities will remain paused until it is safe for us to engage with each other once again. We miss our volunteers and we hope to see you all soon!

If you would like to support families with a financial gift to support hotels stays, transportation, day care needs, and food you can Donate Here!

We appreciate your support as we work to be a good community partner and prioritize the safety and health of our families, volunteers, and staff. The outpouring of love and support from this amazing community has been incredible, and with this support we have been able to serve over 100 families during this crisis! You have filled our families (and staff) with hope. Thank you for standing with our resilient families and children.

Family Promise is the leader in providing family emergency shelter, and will continue to do this work during these unprecedented times, and we could not do this work without you. If you have any questions, please feel free to email me directly.

Stay healthy!
