Karen Olson, our founder, launched the first Affiliate in 1986, under the name Interfaith Housing Network. She engaged the religious community, in her mission to end family homelessness and congregations offered hospitality space within their buildings. Today, we remain a national organization focused on helping families experiencing homelessness and low-income families achieve sustainable independence through a community-based response.


Family Promise of Las Vegas (FPLV)


Family Promise of Las Vegas has served our community for 25 years. We assist families with children facing the crisis of homelessness. Since 1996 FPLV has continued to collaborate with community wide partners to develop innovative programs that serve the needs of our region.


Recently, FPLV announced the “Share the Promise” Capital Campaign to support the construction of a full-service Family Navigation Center. Clark County has been awarded funding of $4.3 million (Community Development Block Grant-CDBG) and 1.1 acres of land to begin this project.


The new Family Navigation Center will be located near East Twain Avenue and Pecos Road. Among the new features in this center will be Bridge Apartments, which will provide short-term housing support matched with case management and essential support services. FPLV staff will work closely with families to achieve their goal of transitioning to permanent housing.

Family Promise of Las Vegas saw a 400% increase in demand for services during the COVID-19 pandemic. Serving approximately 1,800 parents and children during this time. Annually, FPLV reports that approximately 67% of all clients are children!


The New Center will allow Family Promise of Las Vegas to increase the number Clark County families served, expand our impact and ensure that families at risk for homelessness have an opportunity to make their dreams come true – TOGETHER.


We are well on our way to achieving our Capital Campaign fundraising goal of $5.3 million – We are in need of raising $2.54 million to complete our project. I invite you to learn more about our “Share the Promise” Capital Campaign and explore the opportunities to make a life changing difference for families with children in our community.
