Welcome to the website for Promise Places, a 501 (c)(3) non-profit organization. We are a non-denominational ministry project working to provide opportunities and independence for the mentally disabled. Aside from community awareness and education, our primary goal is to provide appropriate, non-institutional housing for adults with mild to moderate mental challenges. These adults are an under served group, as they are often not eligible for public assistance and the private sector isn’t fully addressing the demand for supervised housing. Our current capital campaign is raising funds for the first house, to be called The Assisi House. Furthermore, we strive to educate parents and families of special needs children, and our entire community, on planning for future generations. Please take the time to watch our short video to learn of our strategic goals to help those less fortunate in our community, and how you can help.
