Evaluation Conclusions


Family Promise - Salt Lake (FPSL) meets the 20 Standards for Charity Accountability.
Back To Top



Family Promise - Salt Lake is a non-profit, interfaith (non-proselytizing), organization that provides Shelter, Case Management and Housing services to homeless families. But more than just offering parents and children a safe and supported environment away from the trauma of homelessness, Family Promise strives to facilitate lasting income and housing stability for the families we serve, and by diverting homeless families from more costly interventions (motels, traditional shelters), Family Promise provides a more humane, cost-effective, community-based approach to homelessness. 2015 was our 20th Anniversary, and we were honored to celebrate our many successes over the years, lifting more than 800 families out of poverty and homelessness!

For the fiscal year ended June 30, 2015, FPSL's program expenses were:
