Family Promise of Butler County is an affiliate of Family Promise, Inc. which has been providing overnight lodging to children and families who are homeless throughout our nation since 1988. There are currently 182 affiliates in 41 states. In December of 2014, Family Promise of Butler County became its own 501(c)(3) non-profit organization and began serving families on September 11, 2016. It joins Warren County Interfaith Hospitality Network and the Interfaith Hospitality Network of Greater Cincinnati to address family homelessness in southwestern Ohio.
In Butler County there are currently over 500 children on record as being homeless, representing hundreds of families struggling with homelessness. As a community, we want to respond to this need. For further information or to contribute your time, talent or treasure, go to Family Promise. On ways you can help with Crestview’s homeless ministry, contact Sue Mahlock (513-309-4526). We still have many needs to support these families in crisis.
