Family Promise is a fantastic organization in Billings that helps local families get back on their feet in a sustainable manner. Homelessness is a huge problem in Billings. According to a representative of Family Promise, local statistics indicate that the homeless you see out in public represents only 7% of the actual homeless population in Billings. Many are parents that are employed, but due to various circumstances, they simply can't afford a place to live.
