Since the beginning, our approach has been to collaborate first and understand what is being done, then determine needs and develop partnerships. This goal of caring for vulnerable children isn’t possible in isolation. We recognize the need for collaboration and work diligently to build partnerships with others working toward our same vision.


This partnership is called The Promise Network: a group of churches and organizations nationwide that are committed to living the promise God makes in Psalm 68:6 “to set the lonely in families.”

How it works


We help our church partners and affiliates implement a step-by-step model called Family Advocacy Ministries (FAMs). As part of The Promise Network, our partners receive training, resources, and ongoing staff support from Promise686.


For six years now, we’ve exported the best of our work in developing FAMs, providing support systems for foster & adoptive families, and biological families in crisis. While we first began our work in Georgia, we now support churches and organizations nationwide, allowing the greater potential to reach a very large number of at-risk kids and families across the U.S.


We currently support over 2,000 churches and 41 affiliate organizations in 41 states and greatly recognize how the value of collaboration dramatically impacts what we do each day.


If you represent a church or nonprofit organization that might be interested in joining The Promise Network, we’d love to hear from you!

Special Partnership with Chris Tomlin & For Others Collective

Grammy winner Chris Tomlin is now an official Promise686 partner and advocate. His foundation, For Others Collective, is “a collective of change-makers with one common goal: to holistically address the crisis plaguing our nation’s most vulnerable” and they’ve chosen Promise686 as a strategic ally in this mission. As part of the partnership, Tomlin is using his nationwide concert tour to share about our work developing Family Advocacy Ministries (FAMs) and the opportunities to care for kids who are at-risk.


See how Chris Tomlin and the For Others Collective are partnering with Promise686 to carry out two state-specific initiatives in Florida and Montana.
