Who We Are
We are congregations practicing hospitality to stand together against homelessness and to see lives changed; including our own.
Have you heard the news? We changed our name to Family Promise of the Mid-Willamette Valley. The name change reflects our targeted vision and broad range of programs to end family homelessness in our community. Our new name refers to the promise that local congregations and others in our community make to the families we serve. This highlights the promise, the potential, and the inherent value in every family.
While our name has changed, our mission and passion for transformation has not. Since opening our doors in 1999, we have served thousands of individuals — and over 2,000 families with children. Last year alone, families with a total of nearly 400 children were successfully housed and able to maintain those homes, reflecting our 98% success rate of helping families build a life of self-sufficiency.
We remain committed to the practice of hospitality and our core program, the Interfaith Hospitality Network. We are deeply grateful to everyone who has worked over the past 21 years to dream, establish, support, and sustain the success at Salem IHN. Homeless families are transformed, obtain housing, and increased their quality of living. We look forward to continuing to build on that success working alongside people like you.
