Family Promise of Bryan-College Station was incorporated on October 16, 2006, and began recruiting faith-based organizations to join in a network to support homeless children and their families. The first three churches to join the interfaith network were Peace Lutheran Church, Christ United Methodist Church and Our Saviour’s Lutheran Church.
Family Promise of Bryan-College Station obtained tax exempt status as a 501(c)3 organization on May 14, 2007, and began raising funds with plans to begin serving homeless children and their families as soon as the affiliate requirements were met.
Affiliate status was reached in the spring of 2008 and a working board of directors was seated in April with Ann Park as president.
Aimee Myers was hired as the first Program Director in July of 2008. A space was leased for the Day Center and renovations began with donations of materials and volunteer labor. Portable beds, a van and closed trailer were purchased, and on October 6, 2008, the first three families were welcomed into the program. Dr. Phebe Simmons was hired as Program Director in June of 2010 and continues to serve as director today.
