While many people in our community need help, Family Promise EBC focuses our efforts on serving homeless children and their parents. We are not able to admit those with current alcohol/drug issues, those in domestic violence situations, nor those with untreated mental health diagnoses. Criminal record is taken into account. The following are our basic admission criteria:

  • You are homeless (including living doubled-up or living somewhere not meant for human habitation)
  • Your family includes at least one parent and at least one child under the age of 18
  • At least one parent is willing and able to work


If space is available, it usually takes 3 to 7 days from the day we first speak until your family enters the program. The following are the steps in our admission process:

  • Brief phone screening
  • Nationwide criminal background check
  • In-person interview and day center tour
  • Drug screening
  • Admission decision

Family Promise of East Bell County hasĀ a 78% success rate at helping families achieve sustainable independence!
