Our Story

The Interfaith Hospitality Network (IHN program (now known as Family Promise®) began in Union County, New Jersey in 1988 in response to the growing number of homeless families seeking shelter and support services. Based on this model, a number of communities have successfully implemented IHN programs for homeless families. Currently, there are 192 Networks throughout the United States and others under development. Including Moore County, there are eight Networks in North Carolina.

Family Promise® of Moore County opened its doors to homeless families in January of 2000. For many years, FPMC followed the national model of using churches for overnight lodging, congregations for volunteers, social service agencies for referrals and an existing facility for a day center.

However, in 2016, Family Promise® of Moore County purchased a 3,500 square foot home located at 400 Saunders Boulevard in Aberdeen, NC. The home has five bedrooms and 6-1/2 bathrooms, kitchen, dining room, play room, den, laundry and a fenced in playground. It also has office space for staff and a clothing closet for residents.

The shelter is supported by volunteers from 15 area congregations and organizations. These volunteers perform a variety of duties including preparing an evening meal, spending time in fellowship with the families and spending the night, to ensure the comfort and safety of all.
