Tennessee State Charity
Family Promise of Knoxville works to provide housing, meals, support, and more to homeless families in the East Tennessee area. Family Promise is able to keep families of all shapes and sizes together, which helps provide consistency and stability for the children. In addition to providing overnight accommodations, Family Promise maintains a Day Center where families have access to internet and computer access, individual closets for personal belongings, and laundry facilities. The organization also runs Family Promise Academy, which provides in-house education teaching life and parenting skills, financial literacy, and helps match families with community resources.
