Family Promise of Greater Kingsport, Inc. (formerly known as Interfaith Hospitality Network of Greater Kingsport) is a homeless shelter for families with minor children in the Kingsport area. We work with a group of churches that provide overnight accommodations and meals for the guests who are in our program.
Families with children make up the fastest growing segment of the homeless population. FPGK provides a safe, family oriented place to stay, nutritious meals, and mentoring to help homeless families with children under 18 on their quest to regain independence.
FPGK is the only shelter in Kingsport currently able to accommodate two parent families, families with teenaged boys, and single fathers with teenaged girls. Caring community and staff members provide guidance, encouragement and supportive services to help families find and retain permanent housing.
