Family Promise of Knoxville is a nonprofit network of interfaith organizations working together to end homelessness, one family at a time. In Knoxville  there are many children and their families who are in desperate need of shelter space.  

Because of Family Promise in Knoxville:

  • Parents keep their children out of foster homes and with them as they look for work, housing and a way to get back on their feet.
  • It’s a hands-on way to help the hurting, the homeless, and the hungry in our hometown.
  • We are able to share our Catholic faith in the community.

Sacred Heart volunteers, we are coming up on our next support week for Family Promise. If you are interested in helping out, please go HERE.
