Family Promise understands that there are historically underserved and underrepresented populations in our community, and every effort is made to identify and eliminate barriers preventing their full participation.

Social Justice

Family Promise of the Coastal Empire is committed to educate and empower our guests, staff, Board and volunteers to think critically about systems of marginalization and oppression. This includes an understanding of privilege and the need for all to work toward equity and fairness in the pursuit of transformation of the lives of those with whom we engage.
