We are excited to share our latest innovation in our efforts to end homelessness. Padmission is our new web-based housing search platform custom-built for our housing program participants, their case managers and landlords.

HOW PADMISSION WORKS Padmission is like other online housing search services in that it allows landlords to list and market their properties to prospective tenants. The difference with Padmission is that it is a closed platform just for the Family Promise housing programs. This will make the housing search process much easier and faster for everyone.

PADMISSION FEATURES AND FUNCTIONALITY LANDLORDS List properties and available rental units with information that includes: • Property Address • Floorplan information, including square footage and bedroom/bathroom configuration • Numbers of units available by size • Rent, deposit and fee requirements • Utility responsibilities • Amenities and facilities • HOM housing programs accepted • Pictures • Marketing remarks and specials or concessions

STROUDSBURG, PA – Family Promise of Monroe County is proud to announce that its strong financial health and ongoing accountability and transparency have earned a 100/100 rating from Charity Navigator’s Encompass Rating System. This score designates Family Promise of Monroe County as an official “Give with Confidence” charity, indicating that the organization is using its donations effectively based on Charity Navigator’s criteria. Charity Navigator is America’s largest and most-utilized independent charity evaluator.

The Encompass Rating System is a comprehensive evaluation tool that analyzes nonprofit performance based on four key indicators. In July 2020, Charity Navigator released the first indicator, Finance & Accountability, to highlight nonprofit organizations demonstrating fiscal responsibility. This is determined by five metrics: Program Expense Ratio, Independent Audit or Financial Review, Board Composition, Liabilities to Assets, and Website Listing. In October of 2020, this was quickly followed by the second indicator, Impact & Results, assessing how well a nonprofit delivers on its mission. The additional indicators, to be rolled out in the next 18-24 months, are Leadership & Adaptability and Culture & Community.

We are delighted to provide Family Promise of Monroe County with third-party accreditation that validates their operational excellence,” said Michael Thatcher, President and CEO of Charity Navigator. “We are eager to see the good work that the organization is able to accomplish in the years ahead.”

“Our Charity Navigator rating of 100 out of 100 through their Encompass Rating System is further validation that our supporters can trust our commitment to good governance and making the world a better place,” said Enid Logan, executive director of Family Promise of Monroe County. “We hope that it will introduce our work to new supporters who can help us advance our mission to provide emergency shelter to at-risk and homeless children and their families.

Since 2007, Family Promise has been operating an emergency shelter and housing assistance programs in Monroe County and in 2018, through a partnership with Pike County Commissioners, began offering housing assistance programs in Pike County.
