Donate & Volunteer

Looking for a way to make sure homeless children and families are safe and get back into permanent homes?  Then we need YOU at Family Promise Promise!  You can…

Donate Supplies! It takes a village to supply a shelter…and we need everything, including clothing, diapers, hygiene items, office & school supplies, and laundry/cleaning items.  Please click here to see our needs list!  Our Thrift Store supplies items free of charge to our families and we sell items to support our programs.

Donate Time!  Volunteer in our shelter, prepare a meal, play with babies, serve on our Board, help with our committees, and much more.   Call or email us at for more info and we’ll get you connected immediately.

Donate Time Through Your Church! Our families sleep in YOUR churches while they are in the Family Shelter program. We need more support churches that will partner with another church and provide volunteers and meals and spend time with our families.  We provide all the details and training, and would love to talk to YOUR church today.  Call or email us  for more info and we’ll get you connected immediately.

Donate Money!  Your donations will help families with transportation, case management, work clothes, and permanent housing.  Click here to donate today and change a child’s life immediately.


Donate a Vehicle!  Blount County does not have public transit, and it’s hard for our families to get around sometimes if they don’t have their own cars.  Through our Wheels to Work Program, our families earn a vehicle by meeting goals and moving toward permanent housing.  YOU can donate your used vehicles to Family Promise and we’ll make sure it gets to a deserving family.
